Hi,

I am trying to connect via a VPN, on a 2000 machine I get in no trouble, however when I try on XP SP2RC2 I get the 721 error - Remote computer did not respond. The firewall is disabled.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Jonathanr

Further on the above:

The VPN is done while on a network, if I disconect from the network and dial up I am able to connect OK. The the issue is only when I am on my network trying to connect to another remote site using VPN.

Is your network connection behind a firewall? Are you allowing IPSEC through?

Hi rader19,

To clarify. I have 2 machines next to eachother, one on XP and the other on 2000, the 2000 machine connects no problem, the XP has the issues, I assume if the 2000 machine connects ok then whatever firewall settings are in place are applicable to XP?

thnaks,
