Just wondering if anyone can help me im trying to connect a vpn router to my BT home hub and the hub will not allow it to, How do i get it to enable PPTP Pass-Through for the router as the home hub is blocking my IPTV and a MAG256 box
Solved! Go to Solution.
Welcome to this user forum.
The home hub is locked down, so I don`t think that is an option. I do not use a home hub, but someone else who has one, may be able to help.
I was addviced to get the vpn router on my IPTV devices as ( Virgin, BT, Sky, TalkTalk etc ) will unblock content that my UK ISP Blocks and doesnt allow my IPTV subscritions to access full content
How are you connecting the VPN router? Surely the hub should be transparent and not need any settings changed.
The hub and the router are by Ethernet lead and in the manual book it says my internet provider may have disabled PPTP protocol by default and i was wondering how i enable PPTP so it can pass through
Are you connecting from LAN port to LAN port or LAN port to WAN port?
There is no specific PPTP pass through configuration that can be made on the HH.
You could try port forwarding port 1723 (TCP) on the HH to the WAN address of your VPN router (assuming you have connected LAN to WAN
It just told me in instruction to plug into port 1 on my vpn router and any spare port on the exsisting internet service modem
(a) Is port 1 a WAN port or a LAN port?
(b) You are not connecting it to a modem, you are connecting it to another router.
You need to connect to the WAN port of the VPN router so that it is a separate subnet to allow your devices to connect to it rather than connect to the HUB which is what will be happening if you have connected LAN to LAN. The VPN router won't be routing it will just be acting as an Ethernet switch.
Once connected LAN to WAN, try forwarding port 1723 on the hub to the VPN router WAN
