Configure Cisco Router for Remote Access PPTP VPN Connections
Set Up and Test VPN Connection on Client
Now it is time to configure a VPN connection on a client. I’ll be using a Windows 7 client. Make sure that your client is connected to the external network.
First go into the Control Panel.
Click Network and Internet.
Click Network and Sharing Center.
In the middle click “Set up a new connection or network”.
Highlight “Connect to a workplace”, then click Next.
Click “Use my Internet connection (VPN)”.
Enter the IP address or hostname of your Cisco router. I checked “Don’t connect now” and clicked Next.
Enter the user and password that you set up in the local database on the router earlier, click Create.
Click “Connect now” and the VPN connection should be established. In a future post I’ll discuss enhancing the remote access VPN to allow users to use their Active Directory user accounts to authenticate to the VPN server. Stay tuned!
