been reading through this forum, and also 2012 r2 essentials, but somehow i am not getting my vpn to work
gen8 with 2 nics connected and ilo4 nic connected. Nic 1 is connected to internet, nic 2 to my internal network
nic 1: 192.168.2.200, with gateway
nic 2: 192.168.10.229, no gateway
nic 1 is connected to 4g router. Portforwardings for ports 80, 443, 1723 to ip 192.168.2.200
after installation of server 2016e activated a remotewebaccess.com adress at microsoft, and installed remotewebacces and vpn.
remotewebacces with /remote option is working
my windows 7 laptop is in the domain of my server, client connector installed, and backup etc working.
when i am at my office, or connected via a hotspot of my iphone, i want to make a vpn connection.
everytime i start this, i see shortly that username and login are checked, but that is it, connection stops.
i know i am overlooking something, but as allways, the longer you look, less change of finding it.
any suggestions?. No need to hurry, i can only test this again on saturday.😩😏. Have to work tomorrow.
any help is appreciated
Okay, so I'll be moving in about a month to a different home and I'm trying to gather the necessary materials to set up a relatively extensive mixed home network. In order to simply get off the ground and get started, I've chosen the following pieces of equipment:
Modem: Our area is served by Spectrum and here's the list of the approved modems. Any suggestions on one of these? Router: Cisco RV320 Firewall Device: Do you recommend hardware here or use the router's software firewall? Switch: Cisco SG200 Access Point: Cisco Aironet 3602I Controller: Cisco 2504
So, I'm a complete novice when it comes to building a mixed home network that will eventually entail a server room, NAS, etc. However, I do know that I want all Gigabit equipment and the switch I chose is ginormous simply because I want the overhead to add connections later (IOW, I don't mind that it's overkill). Also, again just because I can, I'm looking to get primarily enterprise quality equipment. I'm not looking to burn money just to burn money, but I'm also not afraid to spend a little for a more quality network and something to learn on.
If I'm thinking correctly, I'll connect into the modem , then to the router, then to the firewall (if necessary), then to the switch, then have the controller in one of the switch ports and the POE AP in one of the POE ports on the switch. This, then, should give me both wired (by plugging Cat6a into the switch for other devices) and wireless access (via the AP), correct? Am I forgetting/missing something?
Really appreciate you entertaining this novice as I try to learn/build this network. You can see my ultimate goals here (Lofty, I know).
I'm new around here, looked for the presentation thread but haven't found any!
Anyway I hope to be able to contribute (as far as my newbie's knowledge will be useful )....
Speaking about what I'm trying to do, I have this amazing microserver gen8, on which I have 2 3tb wd red as storage and an ocz 125gb ssd on 5° port.. Installed a couple of days ago mr. PROXMOX (I'm a complete newbie to it too ) and configured the xpenology 6.0 that runs amazingly!
Now.. I'm just wondering which is the best option to configure a vpn (possibily openvpn) and from my inexperience I found a couple of options:
- try a container with turnkey debian 8 OpenVPN
- install ubuntu on a VM and setup openvpn
- try the vpn server on xpenology
or the least pleasurable
- install openvpn on my windows 10 pc and leave it turned on in way to access the microserver through vpn..
What do you think is better to do? Considering that I am a real noob and will need some guide or some tutorial (already googled something and Have found a lot of material on the openvpn site.. but honestly can't find so much about proxmox and vpn)
PS: sorry for my english, but I'm italian and I'm still learning!
thanks a lot!
I used to run a Win Home Server V1, then an Amahi Home Server and now I have built a Home Server based on Win 10 Pro.
I have got everything running really well except for the VPN for remote access. For some weird reason, I can connect remotely to my Home Server by VPN and it gives me an IP address on the home network ok, but I can't see, access or ping the Home Server itself - yet I can access every other piece of kit connected to the home network (printer, router, other PCs, etc.) through the VPN by entering their IP address into my browser or by pinging them through the command line Ping command with their IP address.
It's as though, by providing access the the rest of the network, the Home Server has become invisible to itself and so I can't access anything on it.
I have used the built-in Windows VPN on Win 10 Pro, rather than using a third party package. I have been using Terry Walsh's "How to Build a Windows 10 Pro Home Server" e-book which has been excellent so far, except that on this, it tells you how to set up the VPN and then just says - go ahead and connect to your remote Home Server - but doesn't address any potential problems - like this one.
Is this something anyone has seen before? Any ideas what the problem could be?

You might have seen my other post about a way to install two CPU fans to the heatsink of the Micro Server Gen 8 on the forum. If not then check it out here. I posted full instructions on my blog here.
I am trying to find a way to stop the noise of the fans when the server isn't producing much processor heat. I think a temperature switch is the best way to go. Something like in the image attached. It allows me to change the temp value but it looks like it might only turn off the switch when it gets hot. I want this the other way around. Does anyone know if this is the case or whether this item would actually work?
