I am trying to set up a VPN connecting two machines that have Windows 2000 Professional istalled on them.  One machine is part of a Novell Netware network.  It is connected to the internet through a shared ISDN line that plugs into a router.  The other machine is a standalone that in connected to the internet via a cable modem.  Both machines have static addresses.  I cannot get the system to work.  When I try to connect I get a message that the computer did not answer/pickup.  I have used the connection wizard to set up each computer.

Thank You - Rob Backus

You can't connect those two machines directly. One of them have to be a windows 2000 server to be the VPN host.
