Having an issue with a VPN. The VPN is a basic PPTP VPN which is setup on our Firewall, for a user to connect the simply create a new VPN point it to our IP and log in with a username and password. The test machine im using is a laptop running Windows 7 64-BIT Professional. I can connect to the VPN and map network shares without any issues, I can also ping around the network to other machines. I have a program which requires access to a folder / repository in order to run. When installing you must point it to the Repository and also to the License server, Everyone has full access to this folder, read write, everything. License Server eg IP - 192.168.168.7 Repository Folder eg - \\192.168.168.7\Lic_ServRepo The install went fine, it didn't complain about any issues. When i try to run the program I get the following error. Deadline Configuration error: An error occured while trying to connect to the Database ( example license server ) it is possible the Mongo database is incorrectly configured, currently offline, blocked by a firewall, or experiencing network issues. Full error: Unable to connect in the specified timeframe of '00:00:30' I know for a fact that. The Database is workingThe Database is currently onlineAnd the firewall on the test machine is turned offSo I can connect to the VPN, ping around the network, Mount network shares, I currently have the Repo mounted and can browse the folder, remove / add files without issues Just the program seems to be timing out when trying to pull resources from this folder. Question Has anyone ever experienced anything like this before? if so how did you resolve it. And does anyone have any advice on how to troubleshoot this further? I'd like to hold off on contacting the admin of our firewall which manages the VPN as i have a feeling it could be something simple that i'm missing. Any help at all is greatly appreciated! If any more information is needed just let me know. I will post ping results and edits below.
