Re: Can't use VPN over Cricket Broadband
Im in san diego as well.
Cricket's network is not configured to allow GRE packets using protocol 47. Any PPTP will fail during authentication usually on a windows machine with error 721.
Unfortuntely Tommy a supervisor in the Kansas Cricket Support center was rude enough to set that troubleshooting cannot be done becuase;
A) Cricket does not support VPN's.. Coincidentally (»www.mycricket.com/cricketsupport···search=0) Cricket states
quote:Funny how a "RECOMMENDED" feature is not supported.
Is my company's proprietary data secure while on the Cricket wireless network?
Cricket Broadband Service uses CDMA technology, which provides authentication and inherent data protection. However, we recommend you use a VPN and enable firewall protection to secure your information.
B) His troubleshooting ended at "If you can ping the server then its not a problem with our service, this proves the route is fine"
Again funny I didnt know ICMP and PPTP run on the same port of 1723?
I suggest calling the customer service number and filing a CORPORATE COMPLAINT through a Supervisor. Ask for a callback and have them explain why it doesnt work.
If ANYONE has a PPTP VPN link working or not thru cricket broadband anywhere in the US I implore you to post here where you are and how or how its not working.
Thank you all, I have a meeting with a Regional Manager Monday to discuss this with them further ...

I am using the basic MS VPN Client to connect. There are no added routes... I have flushed them all before attemtping a connection.. The remote server is stating that the connection is statig the inital handshake is made but it could not establish GRE Protocol.
Meaning they are not configured for PPTP/GRE protocol 47 connections.
This has now been tested on 5 computers.. 4 PC's and 1 MAC all has the same problem.
If you want to test I will give you access to my server through PM..

I think our VPN methods are really different now that I think about it:

I live in Cincinnati and I have the same problem. I got the service about 2 months ago and initially I was able to connect to my business network with VPN. I need this connection because I work from home after hours. Then it just stopped working and was getting Error 721 when trying to connect. Not only that, I wasn't able to connect to the office with Remote Web Work Place either. Finally I tried LogMeIn and most of the time, that doesn't work. I tried calling support but try to get any kind of meaningful dialogue. And I am a customer support person. This is horrible and hardly worth pursuing. I don't think they even care. At least I can cancel without a penalty. I just can't believe they would block VPN
