I cannot connect to an FTP Server over a VPN using Windows 2000, but I can with Windows 98 on another person's PC

In each case I can connect to the VPN without any problems.

I suspect I have to configure something differently but I don't know what. I am using Windows 2000 Professional service pack 4, and I disable all my anti-virus software when I connect to the VPN and attempt using FTP.

Hi Nazir,

Thanks for your efforts but a friend solved it for me.

I had to uncheck "Negotiate multi-link for single link connections" for the network connection I was using. It appears that this setting is checked by default in Windows 2000 and the feature was not supported by the FTP Server I was trying to connect to. In Windows 2000 it is changed via Start, Settings, Network and Dial-up Connections, right click the connection and click properties, click the Networking tab, uncheck "Negotiate multi-link for single link connections".

My friend had access to a Windows 98 and Windows 2000 PC and could compare the settings. When I tested it on a Windows 98 PC I was instructing someone over the phone and could not compare settings.

Once again, thanks for your interest and effort.
