Can't even connect to my VPN server or my ftp site

I'm really angry at the moment! I can't seem to connect to my vpn server which is at home. I need this because when I'm out of the house I sometimes need to connect to my Home Network and sort something out if I need to. Also my dad needs to connect home when he needs to get something from the file server.
Nothing seems to work! I've made a thread about my teamspeak server not working. Now my VPN server is not working.
ALL THE PORTS ARE SET CORRECTLY. EVERYTHING IS DONE CORRECTLY

Did this used to work and has recently stopped or has it never worked?

Re: Can't even connect to my VPN server or my ftp site

How about some concrete info rather than a rant?  Wink  Clearly everything isn't set correctly as otherwise it would work...  One of the reasons your Teamspeak server isn't working is that you haven't configured an external DNS correctly for instance.
What error messages do you get?  Are you connecting by name or IP address?  What ports are open and how have they been forwarded?  What sort of VPN are you using?

All the ports are open, I used the online port checker. All the ports are ALL open, I don't seem to know why it's not working.
@Chris, yes it was working fine on money. And for Teamspeak I had enough trouble with it decided to stop using it.

Re: Can't even connect to my VPN server or my ftp site

OK, I asked four questions and you've answered none of them  Sad
Some more...
Which router are you using?  If you're using the Technicolor router that PN supply, are your aware that port forwarding only works to LAN IP addresses that the router has allocated by DHCP?

It's unlikely to work at the moment as you've reached the usage allowance on your account so your speeds will be heavily restricted until you add more usage or reach your billing date.
