Re: [WISPA] Vista VPN Question

Like Charles said, if you were using a full DHCP server to give out VPN IP addresses, you could push routes to customers using DHCP options. But Mikrotik doesn't use a DHCP server for assigning PPTP IPs, just the IP Pools... so this isn't supported. So I think your only options are client

I think that link is what the OP needed, specifically to uncheck use default gateway on remote network in the advanced properties for IPv4 (and IPv6 if that is being used also). If the vpn server is using DHCP to assign the vpn connection an IP address in the netblock of the remote network, there

Wireless has it's obvious advantages but if you go the BPL route you can use the Motorola product. Just be sure your not going through mroe than one distribution panel. To be honest, depending on the wiring, you may be able to get through a couple of panels. -RickG On Fri, Nov 14, 2008 at 10:09

It depends what the expectations are, and what infrastructure you have accesss to, what challenges there are in gaining coverage. Telkonet can be bought from Tessco. CPEs are around $170 each, but the back end is the significantly more expensive component. ($3000-$5000) If wireless coverage

hi Brian, Just curious why you wouldn't go with a wired solution? Seems like a $200 switch and a box of Cat5 would be an easy fix. Suppose you would want to add some wifi support to it, also. (Open-Mesh, StarOS, or Mikrotik?) One item I picked up from the original media article was that

You are correct, electric companies saw huge benefits for internal use but the real reason it did not move forward was because electric companies are conservative by nature and they didnt like the heat coming from the ARRL over interference issues, which btw were not real. The interference is
