VPN from Mobile 5 to Webservice : no access???
by starkx - 6/2/11 1:19 AM
I have a webservice at IP xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx behind a VPN router at yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy.
I have credentials to login the to the vpn router using PPTP and, via a PC, this give me access to the webservice through a browser.
If I connect (by GPRS) to the VPN using the same credentials from a Windows Mobile 5 device then I get connection to the VPN ( IE I can ping xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx and I have an IP address on the same subnet) but if I try and access the webservice then I get the 'Network cannnot be reached' message come back at me.
If I portforward yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy:NN to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:80 then I can access the webservice (via yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy:NN) without initiating a VPN connection (confirming the PDA can access the webservice OK) so my feeling is that somewhere in the VPN config on the device there is something I havent done - but i'll be damned If I can see it.
Has anyone any ideas?
