Hello, I am new to Mikrotik routers and I would like a little help in configuring VPN connection. What I want to accomplish is to connect from my home via VPN to my office network.
I am using WinbBox to connect to the Mikrotik router. What I have done till now is:
1. In PPP page, I enabled the PPTP Server.
2. In Secrets tab I added a new user, where I selected the "pptp" in Service option and I assigned a local and remote address. I assigned IPs from a different subnet (currently the router assign IPs in 192.168.0.x range.
Then I try to connect from my laptop (Windows 10) and I get the following error. Note, that I try to connect when I am connected outside the office network.
The VPN connection between your computer and the VPN server could not be completed. The most common cause for this failure is that at least one Internet device (for example, a firewall or a router) between your computer and the VPN server is not configured to allow Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) protocol packets. If the problem persists, contact your network administrator or Internet Service Provider.
Thanks a lot !
