Doug, a big guess here, but something I saw in the past. You could infact
have routing problems if you have the same IP scheme on both ends. I had a
company that used 192.168.1.x as their datacenter network. This is also
the same scheme used by most home routers out of the box. Was a problem
when we tried to rollout VPN. Ended up read dressing the home routers to a
different subnet to eliminate conflicts.

Again, a guess, but your situation reminded me of that story. Hope it may

The problem with the VPN is it sees the other end but will not connect
Both sides have Comcast, I have Googled it and tried everything I read.
The server is 2008 and the workstation is Win7 pro
Is it possibly something needs to be configured on the routers?

Hmm, what about some more information?
For example what were the problems with VPN?
Was it the line throughput?
The line stability?
Or other network issues such as client cannot see server?

I am not sure if this is the correct place to askā€¦

I have a client that is opening a branch office, in his main office he
has several workstations and a server.

In the new location (About 50 miles away) he will have 1 workstation,
but he wants that workstation to have access to the

Shared drive on the server, I have tried so many different VPN
solutions and none seem to work.

The server is Windows Server 2008 (Possibly R2)

Does anyone have any ideas that might shed some light on this?

Thank you
