Setting up Win7 PC as PPTP VPN Proxy Server for use with iPhone

Q: Setting up Win7 PC as PPTP VPN Proxy Server for use with iPhone

Hey guys,

I've been digging through forums and sites for the past couple months now trying to find a way to help me turn my home PC into a proxy server so I may use Pandora Radio on my iPhone over public WIFI at work. Recently our corporate offices upgraded their network and in turn added a firewall which blocks many common external sites, one of which included Pandora.

I have found a temporary workaround by way of using Hotspot Shield's free VPN services, but I would like to create my own proxy server at home instead so I can avoid the constant timeouts/disconnects involved with the free service.

So far I've set up my PC to use a static IP on the network, and forwarded port 1723 to that address. I've also enabled incoming connections under adapter settings, but it just seems like I'm missing something big here. I am unable to make a connection to my home PC from my iPhone over WAN, and even if I was able to I'm not sure how to enable internet connection sharing over that connection.

Is what I would like to do at all possible or feasible? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Preferred Solution: Setting up Win7 PC as PPTP VPN Proxy Server for use with iPhone

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My Win8 Start Page apps stopped working - could not access internet. Then I noticed Dropbox couldn't get a "secure connection". But Firefox browser and my email client had no problem with the internet. After hunting around a bit, I discovered that Proxy Server was checked in the LAN Settings of Internet Options-Connections tab. I turned it off and all was well, but it came back on the next boot. I can't find anything suspicious in my autostarted programs and the built-in MS security software isn't complaining about anything.

Anybody have any ideas? I'm fresh out of things to try. Meanwhile I keep resetting the Proxy check box whenever I have to re-boot.

A:Something is setting proxy server

If you haven't tried using System Restore yet, it's pretty handy for this sort of trouble.

From the Windows 8 Start Screen, type Recovery, then click Settings, then click Recovery, and then select Open System Restore. Choose a restore point from before your proxy settings started reinventing themselves.

Best of luck

Hi,
I have Squid installed on a Linux box running OpenSuSE 10.3. Does anyone know of a guide for configuring it for public access. So far it works fine from inside my internal network.

Does anyone know of any other proxy server programs for linux? Thanks.
 

A:Setting up a public proxy server

Hum.. Why are you doing this? You do realise that you will not be able to keep this proxy "secret" (even if you use non-default ports)? There are literally thousands of machines out there doing port scans and looking for open proxies just like yours. Once found, your machine becomes a conduit for everything that needs to be hidden from law enforcement officials. (And you will be the one questioned about all that child porn, hacking attempts and spam.) You should be prepared to keep throrough logs of everything and have a fast internet connection.

Anyway, first you should find out whether it is your firewall or Squid itself that is blocking access from the internet.

For all the Squid documentation you would ever want, try the totally unthinkable www.squid.org

A:Disabling the Proxy Server Setting

The accelerator IS the proxy. The proxy settings probably look like "localhost:8080" or something like that, right? If that's the case, you would need to disable the accelerator, which is probably not something you want to do anyway, so you will need to leave the proxy settings enabled.

Hi all

We have just installed Websense Software for Internet Filtering. We now want to point all our 250+ PCs to the Proxy Server. Rather than doing this individually on each PC, I understand this can be done via Group Policy (GP). I have identified that in the UserConfig, under Windows Settings\Internet Explorer Maintenance\connection you can select Proxy Settings. Here I enable Proxy, set the Proxy IP and to use the same proxy for all addresses.
On saving and assigning the GPO to the workstation, it fails to apply the settings. However, if you manually set the options under the Tools\Connections Tab within IE6 it works fine.

We are running Server 2003 with XP Workstaions (Sp2) with IE6. All fully patched.

Anyone got any ideas!!!!!

Dave:

You can make that change in your default domain policy

It should work withou applying it to workstations.

Hello,

I have strange issue with Windows 8.1 x64 Pro with Media Center. Since it was upgraded from 8, there have been issues with Software Store. Despite internet connection working fine with Firefox and other applications, Store would not connect to the internet. After long investigation I found out that Proxy server setting in Control Panel -> Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings must be disabled in order to get Store working again. For some reason proxy server only stays disabled for the current session, which means when the windows is rebooted it comes back enabled again. My question is how to make it stay permanently disabled, as I don't use any proxy. Thanks.

I am running Win7/Pro x64. My System Spec is in my Profile.

I do not have iTunes installed on my desktop. I do have an iPhone 5, a hand-me-down from my son.

Yesterday the phone needed to be charged. I attached it to a USB port. I was asked by the phone if I trusted my desktop. I said yes. I was told that there were no new images on the phone to import, a fact I already knew. I've encountered this dialog before. It seems to be part of the procrustean Apple way of computing.

What troubles me is that a process started about the time I plugged in the phone. At a rate of 5-10 files/sec the 'modified' date was changed on over 3,500 jpg files on my data drive. I've not analyzed the order in which they were processed but suspect that it was A-Z on the file names and also on folder names.

Could this behavior result from iTunes running its 'sync' process? If so, is there anything I can do to prevent it from happening again?

If we have no Apple OS experts on this forum, does anyone know of an 'Apple forum' that is as respected as sevenforums is in the Windows world?

I created a VPN server in Windows 8.1 via ncpa.cpl (originally via this article). I was able to connect my iPhone and its LTE connection to the VPN (home desktop), and it also has a proper IP address (given the info in VPN properties > Networking > IPv4 Properties). I can even ping the phone with Command Prompt.

What isn't working on the phone is any type of Internet connection. The VPN server is already setup to allow sharing of the Internet connection, which doesn't seem to be working. Because of this (I'm assuming), I can't access the computer's files via SMB like I usually can when connected via the same local network on Wi-Fi, after trying both IP addresses (LAN IP + VPN IP).

Any ideas? I've done some reason, but haven't found anything useful. I've checked out the various properties and settings without success.

I am having a strange problem with the built-in PPTP server in Windows 8.1. Every time that the machine is started with a cold boot, I can't connect to the VPN. I run netstat -ano, and confirm that it is not listening on TCP port 1723. It is not listed at all, so it doesn't seem to be used by another app. RRAS is running, and restarting the service does not change anything. Additionally, the "Incoming Connections" in present in the adapters page, and all the settings are correct.

However, the issue is temporarily fixed by doing a restart. After a warm boot, the server is listening on port 1723, and I can connect to it with an outside client. This rules out all network and firewall issues on the server side, and all other issues on the client side.

From my testing, it seems that if the server machine is shut down, and started from a cold boot (even after just a couple of minutes), it never listens on port 1723. I have tried setting RRAS to delayed start without success. But so far, it always listens on port 1723 after a warm boot (restarting).

Does anyone have any ideas on why this is happening? Are there any diagnostic tools that I can use to pinpoint the problem? Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

i am just messing about experimenting on a few things at home and wondered if someone could give me some pointers on the folowing:
I have myself a win2k server that is connected to the internet using a cable modem connected using a ethernet net card.
I also have a 98 machine networked to the server using another ethernet net card in a workgroup
I want to use the server as a proxy server so i can access the internet from the 98 machine
i have tried a few diffrent things to get this working but usually end up losing all communication with the 98 pc
from what i can gather it involves setting up tings with DNS, and sharing the connection to the internet, but i am not getting to far at the mo.
can anyone point me in the right direction or better tell me how to do it?
cheers

I know that it's a fairly common question but I have just not found a way to make it work.

I want to use my iPhone as a modem but do so wirelessly through Bluetooth.

After downloading the latest Centrino drivers for my laptop's Bluetooth adapter, I successfully paired my iPhone and my laptop. The problem is that I can only share music files. For some reason, I can't share Internet access over Bluetooth. It's not coming up as an option in the "Devices" section once both devices are connected.

Am I doing anything wrong or do I need to create a network from within Win7? I tried setting up the drivers using Microsoft's internal database of drivers but it couldn't find any drivers for my Bluetooth adapter. As a result, the two wouldn't even pair up. Downloading the Intel drivers fixed that problem. But now, I find myself not being able to tether without USB.

A:Tethering iPhone to Win7 using Bluetooth

Hi,

Unfortunately Apple restricts the bluetooth use of it's devices & therefore it is not possible to do that.

Sorry

I upgraded my computer to windows 10 and now, the proxy settings keeps getting reset to 127.0.0.1 and I loose internet connection until I go to internet explorer and remove that settings - it is really annoying - how do I completely remove it once and 4all.
 
Thanks for the responses and help in advance.
 

A:Proxy Setting 127.0.0.1

127.0.0.1 is the local host (Ethernet address) 
 
Search for Internet Options>>Connections>>Lan Settings>>Uncheck all check boxes expect Use Automatic Settings and click apply and ok, that should fix it.

 What does it do when you set up your own proxy using google apps and python engine? I did that not long ago just to see if i could but dont know how a circular route would be any better (circular route- a google account traceable to my ip, setting up a proxy that uses said google account.) Whats the deal with this way of doing it?  Its worked to get passed certain blocked sites but then its also barred me from other sites that don't allow proxy logons.

Hi all
Here is my work ground :
-2 win7 ultimate machine one is laptop.
-"WORKGROUP" is setting on both(not homegroup).
-I'm the admin. on both machine.
-computer names are different (Amirst, Amirs)
-user account name for both and password are the same (Amir)
-sharing settings as in the photo for both (password is disabled).
-both run the same network of course.
-the issue happens on wifi as well .
-Hotbox appear in the network has no role, its just my modem/router.
-both machine use windows firewall and MSE antivirus

Now :
-on the Amirst machine i can see all Amirs machine users folder/sub-folders (as in photo 3) -why is it so when sharing stetting disabled?
-on the Amirs machine i can see all Amirst machine (photo4 ), but cannot open to view shared files which is fine according to sharing settings .

Can somebody tell me whats going on, why i can see all files on Amirst machine (from Amirs machine) though they are not sharing?
And why the issue is only on Amirst machine, when settings are all the same for both machine

Thanks!

A:Sharing issues on win7 /iphone port 445

ok.....
the answer- is that port 445 was open continuously on Amirs machine , and overcame sharing settings.
it was enough to allow sharing.

why was port 445 open?- because i made a new rule a month ago (and forgot about it until now...)in firewall to enable my iphone cellular network(4G) connect from "outside " to my home network (Amirs machine).

now i disabled the inbound 445 rule i made and set all sharing settings as they should be and sharing between pc's is fine.

STILL i've 2 more questions

1-why all users folder/sub-folders can be seen both way if i didn't select to share them( photo 3 above) ?
how to fix that?
2-after i disabled the inbound 445 rule, how can i connect with my iphone cellular network from "outside " to my home network ?
in my XP machine i did it successfully-on firewall settings i had to select scope>any which is the equivalent to a public network.

I have a simple html file to open an mp4 (h.264) file. When the file sits on a Windows IIS server, my IPhone and IPad will play the video without any issues.

When the file sits on a proprietary server, my IPhone and IPad request the download, but then stops the process almost immediately. Non IOS phones and desktop browsers have no problems requesting and viewing the video from the proprietary server.

The proprietary server is one that was created using c++ (Visual Studio 6.0) several years ago. They used the winsock libraries that were available at the time. I'm not very knowledgeable about winsock, but I have been afraid that IOS requires some handshaking that the older winsock libraries may not have.

Non IOS devices access the video file from the server with no problems.

I use Wireshark to see the http/tcp requests between the IPhone and the server. I see the IPhone request the mp4 and then I see the server send a "200 OK" response and then start to send the file. Soon after the server starts to send the file, the IPhone sends a "reset" request which stops the sending of the file.

Any ideas why the IPhone would reset the communication and stop the file from being sent? I am far from a regular user of Wireshark, so hopefully, my reading of the file is correct.

Here is an image of my Wireshark capture if anyone is interested. It clearly shows the reset from the IPhone.

Thank you for any help.
