    Hello,

    I just moved to a home offce.
    I am trying to access my business network with VPN (Virtual Private Network)
    and of course: I CAN'T !

    Here is my situtation:

    1) I have a Windows XP Pro desktop

    2) I connect to Internet via a cable modem with a Microsoft MN-700 router.
    This is a wirelss router; however , my desktop is "wired" to the router (I
    use the wireless features for another laptop at home)

    3) If I don't use the router, the VPN works fine
    But with the network in the loop, it just doesn't work.

    4) My VPN client is Contivity EXTRANET VPN Client V04_15.06 aka NORTEL
    ipsecshm

    5) I have all the required info (User Name, Passcode, Destination Address
    etc...)

    6) When I try to connect to the business network , I get the following
    message:
    "Login Failure due to: Remote host not responding"


    My suspiscion is that the Microsoft MN-700 router is not properly configured
    to allow VPN access.
    The only way I can modify the settings for the router is by using the
    Microsoft Broadband Utility. However, in the user's guide, I couldn't find
    any information on how to set up the router for VPN.
    I looked online too but the explanations are not clear. I see a lot of posts
    talking about Port Forwarding but nothing in detail really.

    Can someone please help me to configure the router via the Broadband Utility
    but telling exactly what settings I need to change.

    Thank you so much for your help.
    Hopefull that will solve my problem.
