PPTP VPN Setup with RV110W and Win2k3 RRAS


I have an issue that has been dogging me know for a few days and am wondering if anyone may be able to help.  First off, here is my setup/configuration:


1.  2 physical locations (sites).  One has a STATIC IP for the WAN (S2), the other has DDNS for the WAN (S1)

2.  Both sites face the Internet using RV110W routers.  LAN IPs are Router1(  and Router2(

3.  A RRAS server is setup behind the S1 router and is negotiating all the VPN traffic.  The S1 router is configured to allow VPN traffic through and the Firewall is forwarding TCP 1723 traffic to the VPN Desginated network adapter on the RRAS.

4.  At S2, the router is configured without any VPN settings.  I am going to have the workstations (all Win7Pro) use the built in VPN connection to connect with.

5.  RRAS is configured to allow up to 10 VPN connections at once, and I have made sure it is configured properly.


At S2, I am able to connect a single workstation on the VPN server with no issue.  However, when I try to connect another workstation on the VPN (I should say user) it never connects and it fails.  I don't have a SS of the error code, but through my research, I determined that the VPN configuration is only allowing one VPN connection at a time to the S1 site.  The issue then is, how can I make it so all the workstations/users can connect to the VPN at the same time?

I am able to connect each workstation/user to the VPN individually one at a time, but I am unable to connect more than one VPN connection at a time.

I appreciate any help offered as I am beating my head agains a wall right now trying to comb through the manual and google to figure out what I am overlooking.  Once I get back onsite I will try and gather some screenshots of the errors I get etc if they are needed.

Thank you!


Nat rule
