I installed a DI-604 D-Link router to share cable modem at home

Question

I installed a DI-604 D-Link router to share cable modem at home. My 2nd computer, a laptop from work no longer is connecting. I am using a VPN set-up and it worked fine for about 2 weeks.

I am getting the following error message, "Timed out waiting for tunnel server to respond during protocol negotiation."

Have I upset the "cable g-ds" at cox and have they set-up a block?

Any help would be appreciated.

This question was answered on June 11, 2003. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

I'm not shure but the VPN set-up Gateway A has a permanent connection to the Internet, and a static IP address (nice!) Gateway B has a dialup connection to the Internet, and is assigned a new IP address by the ISP on each dialup (not so nice!)

For the sake of this document, LAN A will have network IP's of 192.168.35.0/24 (in other words the machines in this LAN will be in the range of 192.168.35.1 to 192.168.35.254) and LAN B will have network IP's of 192.168.105.0/24 Gateway A will have an internal IP address of 192.168.35.1 and an external IP address of 25.50.100.200 (this is obviously fictitious!) Gateway B will have an internal IP address of 192.168.105.1 and an external IP address that changes each time we dial up.
