From what you describe, what is the story with your firewall at the office?
What about the VPN client software from the vendor of the firewall? Can you use that?
Both Barracuda and Fortigate provide their own VPN client software. You get a VPN connection with it.
They do have their limits - you can only run one instance of a vendor's VPN client connection at a time.
I find that the two different vendors' clients create local network troubles (routing and DNS resolving) if you run them at the same time.
I do have two separate networks to reach when I am at home- production in the data center and the office.
I haven't had to deal with either the Apple or Windows VPN support since 2015.
I am in the process of upgrading our Gateway from a Vigor 2960 to a Unifi Security Gateway Pro (USG-PRO-4). I could try the VPN on the Uni once I complete that upgrade. I've tried configuring the VPN on the Vigor but can't seem to get it to work.
For sure, it is TIME for some major VPN upgrades and going to look at all of these suggestions and see what I can apply and use. Thank you!
But you mentioned vpn passthrough earlier - so is the VPN not being provided from a windows server (not the router)?
So you can just add SSTP to the windows server RRAS and then clients can use that.
Or on vigor router try SSL or ipsec - they can run in parallel to your pptp. Then when all users moved over turn off pptp.
What did not work on router? You just enable the vpn type, create a configuration in dial-in users and it works.
Yes, it is being provided by Windows Server. So if I want to force SSTP to be used rather than PPTP, how do I set that? I am not really seeing an option for that in the RRAS screen and options...
So I found and article that appears to show how to set it up...is it this involved? And will it affect those connected right now if I continue? https://supporthost.in/how-to-configure-sstp-vpn-on-windows-server-2019/
Also, if I wanted to configure the Vigor, I kind of get stuck here on what exactly to put here...does each person need a profile since they are all in their homes in different cities?
