VPN config results in ping "general failure"

    Question

  • I have an SBS 2008 installation that has been running with no issues. When I enable VPN with the SBS wizard it immediately fails all network connectivity, pinging results in a "general failure" message. I have tried one "solution" configuring RRAS but with no success. Still looking for possible solutions.
    thanks

    Hello,

     

    Thank you for your post here.

     

    First of all, I'd like to suggest you to double check whether there is any Inbound Filters and Outbound Filters applied on the Intranet and Internet interfaces in the RRAS.

     

    1. In the RRAS MMC, double click the Interface in RRAS server--->IPv4--->General.

    2. In the General tab of the interface, make sure that there is not any Inbound Filters and Outbound Filters.

  • You may want to add a default route on your server as below:

    Open Command prompt as administrator and type the following:

    >route add -p 0.0.0.0 MASK 255.255.255.255 192.168.1.1{Your default gateway thats connected to your internet}
