So I want to setup a VPN between my Snow Leopard Mac at home and my Mountain Lion Server Mac at work. I've enabled the VPN server on the Mountain Lion server, and I've forwarded all VPN ports on the router at work to the OSX Server computer. I have the VPN server set to use L2TP AND PPTP, but no matter what settings I put in the Snow Leopard Mac client at home, I can't get it to connect. What am I missing here? Can someone please walk me through this? Surely it is NOT as difficult as I am making it out to be... This seems to be the simplest way to do what I'm trying to do besides using LogMeIn Hamachi, but I don't want to do that. I have also tried setting up an IPSec VPN through the Linksys RVS4000 router using IPSecuritas, but had no luck. I have also tried setting up a PPTP VPN from work to home through my home DD-WRT router, using the native Mac PPTP VPN client, also with no luck. I'm not very smart when it comes to networking, but smart enough to know that I must be missing something important here. Finally, a slightly unrelated question: Is there any way at all to share a connected network volume via OSX Server file sharing? The main thing I am trying to do is to access a network share on the Windows 2003 Server network server at work. I forwarded all ports for SMB and AFP, but couldn't connect to it via finder, so it's looking like my next best solution is a VPN to the Mac Server which is connected to the same network as the share I need to access. Sorry this post is so long. Can anybody help?...please?
