Hi All,

I am trying to setup a VPN connection to my ClarkConnect Server at home with little success.

Problem: When using Windows XP Network connection wizard to set up a PPTP VPN connection to the CC server, login fails after a 30 second 'hang' at the user validation stage. Error code 619 displayed.

SetUp: Running ClarkConnect Community Editon 4.1 in Standalone mode (no firewall) behind a Linksys router with static IP. Linksys has ports 1723 and 500 forwarded to the CC box in both UDP and TCP

Tried already:

Rebooting all hardware numerous times

Checking that the PPTP service is running on CC. (Stopped and restarted and rebooted)

Checking CC version for updates (all current)

Ensuring that the user account in CC has VPN PPTP enabled

Checking all usernames/passwords

Tried from XP Pro and XP Home machines on different connections, same result

Googled my pants off! tried the CC docs and forums.

Any ClarkConnect or VPN guru's out there???

Ok lets see if we can help

Can you VPN to the CC box from PC on the same LAN as the CC, this will verify that the CC is all configured correctly and working
ie VPN connection should point to the interface on cc box eg 192.168.x.x

Should be fine it so simple with CC, nothing much to get wrong

I suspect your Linksys router doesnt support GRE, not many routers do these days

No I can't. Get same problem as if trying from outside LAN.
