HI,

 

I have a public ip address which i have brought from my isp i have successfully set up the VPN on it and even configured it. i can connect to VPN from inside my home using the private ip but i am not able to connect it from Outside my home using public ip.

 

I have opened the firewall too also NAT but thats not helping. I have setup a username and password too to access it but public id and password is not working.

 

I cant figure out what is the problem causing this issue.

What guide did you use to setup this vpn?  Please provide a link to it.

Did you setup port forwarding in the router to the static ip of your server for the vpn port(s)?

Setup was easy and simple but what i am not able to do is connect VPN from outside to my home server.Can you help? And yes i did port forwarding too on my router but that didnt help from accessing VPN from outside using public ip

OK.  So you are using PPTP.  Did you make sure your router isn't blocking GRE?

No i am not using PPTP i am using L2TP with username and password.I believe what ur asking me about GRE it is not blocking because i can access VPN internally.

You don't touch your router when connecting internally so the conclusion that GRE isn't blocked isn't factual. 

 

But that doesn't matter since you are using L2TP.  You have the wrong port(s) forwarded for L2TP

"I wanna setup vpn for security purpose to do online transaction from my home"

and

" so i can connect to my home vpn"

 

You are talking two different types of vpns.  For your outbound transactions you would enlist a vpn service with the additional caveat that when you do a online transaction you are using https <--note the S as in secure not http for your transaction connection.

 

Now if you want to connect from the outside to inside your home consider using remote desktop or team viewer which encrypt the conection

It sounds like you want to bounce off your home system from the outside to the internet securely.

 

Doesn't work that way.

 

Not only are you using the same connection/bandwidth for in and out vpn /internet access, [going to need a big pipe for that], your home wan ip is still exposed as is your home connection to the internet.

 

Now if you just wanted access to your home network securely, there are a number of ways but it depends on the device doing the access.  Your laptop or someone else's device?

5 smartphones and 3 laptop running simultaneously "Lets just say FROM HOME i just want to access internet securely completely net neutrality only at home not from anywhere else,i dont want to use it from anywhere else".

 

Now will that be possible? or still going to be complicated.
