Snow Leopard Server

I am trying to set up a mac mini server (snow leopard 10.6) configured to share local files in afp and have a VPN when i am at university. I currently have the Ask4 4Connect package and have the mac mini on a external ip when i had SSH enabled.

I have successfully configured the mac server to AFP, but i am struggling with VPN. I have set it up but one thing that i am unsure about is the start and finish IP addresses. I have tried to set these with the internal and external ip address in both boxes but still been unable to connect. I know that i have to get the VPN service enabled by Ask4.

One more thing thing that is should mention is that i have entered the following under client information.
DNS Servers: 10.105.01
Search Domains:

I got the above information using network connections information for ethernet.

Hi Dean,

You would need a public IP for the Mac Mini if you intend to run a VPN server. If you have not requested this then I imagine you are using the IP of our gateway which will mean the VPN packets will get dropped by the firewall.
