I have been trying to setup a VPN connection between my home and office computer to make for easier off-site backups (for both home and office) but I’ve been unlucky thus far. I’m using DD-WRT on my home router and I’m trying to connect to that as a VPN from my office. Each time I try to connect, I get the following error:
Connecting to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx using ‘WAN Miniport (PPTP)’…
Error 807: The network connection between your computer and the VPN server was interrupted. This can be caused by a problem in the VPN transmission and is commonly the result of internet latency or simply that your VPN server has reached capacity. Please try to reconnect to the VPN server.
