SERVER:
Windows NT 4.0 / SP1 / RAS -> TCP/IP = works fine!

after installing the SP3 (because I needed it for an other software from
MS) everything worked fine, besides nobody was able to dial into the
network via RAS (TCP/IP - PPP) anymore.

=> Error 733 - the PPP Protocol on the other server is not the same as
on the client.

CLIENT:
Windows NT 4.0 / SP1 / RAS -> TCP/IP

ok - so I tried to install the SP3 to the client machine as well (maybe they changed something in the PPP) -> same effect - no login (Error 733)

I tried to reinstall the RAS on the Server and on the client -> nope!
I tried to reinstall the SP3 after reinstalling the RAS -> nope!

any other ideas - does anybody use this configuration and it works?

UPDATE: I deinstalled the SP3 because RAS is important to our company -> after the Deinststallation everything works again (SP1): I think this is a bug in SP3 - please let me know if anybody finds something out (there is nothing in the KB yet - http://www.microsoft.com/kb/ )

thanks for any help

Grab Routing and Remote Access Service from www.microsoft.com [should be mpr*.exe, * being your architecture]. Install it as Administrator. It'll firs dump its files into a directory, and then remove the existing RAS driver, before rebooting. After reboot, log in again as Administrator, and it should continue on, installing the service. Once that is done, you should be presented with the familliar RAS properties menu.

Configure the device used, in this case, as RAS server on the server, and RAS client on the client. [You can select demand-dial router if you want, but using that requires the use of the Routing and RAS Admin in Admin Tools.] Then reconfigure the client's RAS phonebook entry as needed.
