    I have a D-link router connected to a LAN where we need to use vpn. I have two computers (debian and windows XP) connected to the router, both are able to set up a vpn-tunnel. The problem is when I set up one vpn connection from my debian machine, and another vpn connection from windows XP, that everything works but very slowly (400B/s wher a "normal connection should deliver 800kB/s) in the beginning and stops working after 2-3 minutes. What did I do wrong? Do I need to let my router making the vpn connection? Is this possible? Thx in advance
  2. Hmm this could be the issue. I thought all cables were crossover cables Can you make a crossover cable from a regular one? And how can you be sure a certain cable is/isn't a crossover cable?
  3. Thank you for the help here are the results from ifconfig eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:40:F4:5D:9A:26 inet addr: Bcast: Mask: inet6 addr: fe80::240:f4ff:fe5d:9a26/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:0 (0.0 TX bytes:0 (0.0 Interrupt:177 Base address:0x8400 eth0 Link encap:Ether
  4. I try to connect two computers with fedora core 4 using a crossover cable and an ethernet device on each computer. I configured each device with pc1: ifdown eth0 ifconfig eth0 pc2: ifdown eth0 ifconfig eth0 routes seem ok (it creates by default a network route) and I am also sure that the ethernet cards and the cross-over cable work, but I am unable to ping from one machine to another. Any suggestions what could be wrong? Thanks in advance.
