VPN and RDP connections stopped working.

Hi, as of last week i am unable to connect my VPN or RDP into my remote server. We are on telstra nbn using a v7610 modem.

A tracert shows the connections fails from this step.

Tried rebooting the modem last week and the connection came up for a day then has been down ever since. The Internet connection still works at the remote site but unable to connect in.

Any ideas on how to fix this ??

Re: VPN and RDP connections stopped working.

Is the remote site on a static IP address? If not, it could now have a different IP address from the one that you were using?
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

its a static address. I can't seem to login to other telstra static ip sites that we previously could as well. Wondering if it is a routing issue or the telstra modems have all packed it in at the same time.

It could be port forwarding in the Telstra Modem is no longer working. There are quite a few post were these modems lose port forwarding until rebooted.
