    Question DSL and VPN ?

    Is there anyway to get a VPN work with an existing DSL line? I could get it to work fine when I had my ISP!
    So does anyone know if Ameritech DSL will support a VPN connection?
    thanks

    I would suspect that they will not support your setup (but if you feel like sitting on hold for a while just to hear the answer then go ahead)

    A better idea: Consult www.speedguide.net www.dslreports.com and http://cable-dsl.home.att.net/ for tips and info

    Usually it's 90% dependent on your DSL "modem". Which VPN are you using...aventail?

    yeah...the problem is that alot of DSL providers are USING VPN to provide you access...if your not sure, check and see if you were given a static IP address....9/10 times if you DO have a static adress you will be able to use VPN. I use a Lucent built VPN client to connect to work and have no trouble

    You don't need a static IP address to work the VPN. Sheesh, why does everyone think you do? All you need is the IP address at the time you're trying to connect. I do this all the time with my business partner. Since our DSL connections are "always on", our IP addresses seldom change. And when they do, it's usually something that Qwest had done from their system.

    Microsoft has several tech articlesa about VPNS:

    I hope this helps...

    i never said it couldnt be done...only that verizon and other VPN based ISPs make it a pain to do so because of the changing IP.
    oh...and sheeesh yourself man..i was only trying to help.

    ask your isp if they're blocking these ports. many service providers get really pissed if you run a vnp service and will boot you.
