Struggling to make my first vpn

Post by joshjoshajosh » Mon Oct 29, 2018 9:14 pm

I'm just trrying to connect internally on my lan to my vpn, with pptp and openvpn enabled, but none of my clients are connecting and there's no error messages on the server, or they are not in a useful place.

Latest error is from the built-in windows client: Error 800

It's a bit frustrating that there's no help out of the box to get even the basical functionality working, I had the Microsoft one working over the internet within 5 minutes. Can anyone help me get my first vpn setup?

Edit: Also netstat doesn't even show it listening on port 1723, is this normal? This is not a user friendly application, and that's coming from a guy who created a corporate Windows 10 build from scratch including over 300 GPOs and all the deployment services to go with it in just over a month.

Have you specified the private IP address of the VPN server for the destination?

SoftEther VPN doesn't support PPTP.
