I'm trying to setup an VPN server with windows 2000 professional SP 4, but I always get this error: "TCP/IP CP reported error 733: Your computer and the remote computer could not agree on PPP control protocol". My client is a Windows 2000 professional SP 4 too, and the option "Negotiate multi-link for single link connections" it is disable. The server ip is something like 200.XYZ.* and the client is like 200.ABC.*.

Do you have any idea of how I do this?

Thanks

I don't think you can create a VPN between to 2K Pro machines.  Is that what your trying to do?  You will need RRAS on 2000 Server for that.

you can setup a incoming connection between 2K Pro machines.

Stoner79, if you are talking about the Routing and Remote Access Service, it exists on Windows 2000 pro.

RRAS doesn't exist on 2000 Pro.  You can add the snap-in through adminpak.msi but this is to administer RRAS on a 2000 Server.  Where have you read it exists on 2000 Pro?

The accept incoming connections is to allow 1 computer (unless you have more than 1 modem) to connect directly to the computer its dialling, although it doesn't offer much compared to RRAS.  You can browse files on the computer you connect to but I've not used it as far as connecting to a LAN.

Dear Stoner79, You was right. I can't setup an VPN server on windows 2000 professional, after realize this I installed Windows 2000 Server on my machine, so I configured the RRAS and one VPN client access and all works fine. But after did all updates (Service packs and security updates) I can't access my DSL internet provider if RRAS service is started.

Do you know something about this problem?

I can have a look into it.

I would recommend closing this question off as its answered your question and post a new one. Not being greedy with points, but not many EE's will look at this post now and if you post a new one you will get a lot more help with RRAS.

Alester.

A bit late, but it appears there is a form of VPN in 2000 Pro.  It still isn't anywhere near as good as RRAS but thought you might be interested.

You dont need RRAS, you can do enough with 2000 Pro if you know how.

Follow the article, re-post if it doesn't work

Check that your LAN IP setting are not in the same range as your VPN IP settings on the machine creating the connection. Also check that in the properties of the connection, the VPN type is set to any.
Use DHCP on the "VPN Server" and set aside a static scop of a couple of addresses.

Look at any security settings you might have.

It should work, I set it up today, which is how I stumbled across this thread (GOOGLE is great), so I thought I'd share.
