Question Vpn l2tp?

Hi,

For some reason I cannot connect to VPN from my house with any protocol other than L2TP. Not a problem from my PC, but Boxee Box does not allow you to connect via VPN with any protocol other than PPTP. Does anyone know a workaround, or when/if this will be changed in future Boxee Box firmware updates.?

Cheers,

Dave

Default Same issue

You know I was killing myself wondering why I couldn't connect either till I read your post, sure enough when I tried connecting PPTP via my Macbook Pro it would not work either. Seems I as well can only connect via L2TP from my router OR ISP. I am not sure who is the problem. Have you figured out if it is a router problem OR the ISP is not letting PPTP through?

dcraider,

No afraid that I have not had any luck with a work around... Just updated the firware on my boxee, hoping that they had introduced L2tp support but they have not yet heard our pleas!

I love the boxee, but can't utilise a lot of its functionality due to this issue. If you manage to get result and find out what is the problem, please let me know!!
