    Default Can't access to my VPN server from internet box

    Hi everyone,
    I recently set a PPTP VPN server at my house with a mikrotik router.
    When I try to connect to the VPN with my mobile phone using 3G/4G, it works directly. But when I try from the internet box of an other house, the connection fails and if it's successfull I can't access to the internal network of the VPN. I tried to ping my PC from the VPN server and it doesn't work.

    Any ideas ?

    My guess would be that both your home network internally and the one at the other house both use the same subnet range? guessing maybe 192.168.1.x ?

    Think so, your phone when you're at the 'other' house thinks you're at home and will try connecting direct and not via VPN. So when it does this, obviously it isn't going to find the right target system.

    Same would happen if you're anywhere that is using the same subnet you're using at home.

    So a different subnet at your home would be the suggestion.

    At least that's what I think is happening and I'm no expert.
