Hi,been trying to get a VPN connection to a win NT 4 server from some win xp pro and win 2000 machines.Everytime I try to get a connection I get an error of TCP/IP 733
  I have installed the option pack and the service pack 6 on the server (the service pack last after all of the config of the ras service and option pack install)  Am I missing something?I have removed all of the bindings except the wan wrapper bound to the ras service.Should I go back and install everything again?One thing I did do is the first time I installed the option pack,I selected the minimum for the ras functions.Do I need anything else maybe?I did go back and installed what I remember were the common programs.Any help would be appreciated

Ensure that the TCP/IP protocol is installed on your RAS server and that the TCP/IP protocol is selected in the Server Settings of the Network Configuration option of the Remote Access Setup dialog.
If you have the "Use DHCP to assign remote TCP/IP client addresses" option selected for the TCP/IP protocol in the RAS Server Settings, then ensure that you have installed DHCP and that it is not disabled.
Ensure that all of the bindings for TCP/IP are enabled in the Bindings tab of the Network dialog of the Control Panel. Be sure to inspect the TCP/IP Protocol and WINS Client(TCP/IP) bindings for all adapters, all protocols, and all services. If the TCP/IP bindings are corrupt, you may have to reinstall TCP/IP and or RAS in order to clean up the bindings.
NOTE: If the TCP/IP bindings are only partially disabled, you may still be able to connect with TCP/IP over PPP without an error, but you may only have limited functionality over the connection. This will depend on which TCP/IP bindings are disabled.

another option to check
error 733: could not agree on PPP control protocols
If nothing works, then try reinstalling RAS and VPN on Windows NT Server
i hope this will help
