I'm trying to configure VPN on my Mac Mini Server running OS X Lion 10.7.1 with Server app.
I have a SKY D-Link ADSL router connected via ethernet is Apple AirPort Extreme and my other devices including my Mini connect to my AirPort Extreme via Wi-Fi.
I don't have a Static IP so I am using DynDNS. I have installed the DynDNS Mac application on my Mini.
I have set the hostname on my mini to the hostname provided by DynDNS and I have set my Mini a static LAN IP of 192.168.0.100.
I have turned the VPN service on the Mini's server app, set a secret key and set a range for VPN connections of 192.168.0.101 - 192.168.0.200
For testing purposes I have enabled and forwarded all ports for incoming services to 192.168.0.100 on my D-Link Sky router.
I have tried to connect my iPhone using my DynDNS host name authenticating with a network account I have created and my secret key. I get an error
the L2TP-VPN server did not respond.
My internet connection is working correctly on both my network and my iPhones data plan I have checked with my ISP and they do not block VPN connections.
