No Longer Can Connect to VPN

Hi all -
I used to be able to connect to my VPN with my laptop, but I no longer can.  I can use my desktop at home to connect, but my laptop will not.  It gives me an error 619.  Both my desktop and laptop are on the same network at home so I'm really at a loss.  The VPN connection is managed by my firewall at work and not the win2k3 servers.
Thanks in advance.

619 is a connection error. Can you surf the Internet? Also, check the VPN client designation (I guess you have a Checkpoint Firewall) is properly configured. Also, verify with your System Administrator for configuration.

My laptop is running XP Pro.  The firewall manages the VPN connection entirely, so active directory is not involved until after the connection between the laptop and the firewall is established.  I can surf the net w/o a problem.  The desktop that can connect is on the same network as my laptop.

Thanks for your response naziragmed.  What is ICS/ICF?  I am going through an ISP and just started having problems a few days ago.  But again, my desktop, which connects through the same ISP, isnt' having any problems.  I did install the latest version of AOL - around the same time. But I uninstalled it and am still having the problem. Again, any help is appreciated.

Hi JLEmlet,

Please confirm these few things..
What brand is your firewall? Hardware base? if it is Checkpoint, it's a software base then.
Are you using PPTP Protocol? or IPSec?

ICs is intenet connnection sharing which probably you are not using on that box, ICF is internet connection firewall, which you can check by going into Network connection properties, i think on advance tab(dont have xp at the moment).  It could be the AOL latest install whcih has changed few things on xp.  if you check your network settings and see if internet connection firewall is enabled, try disabling it.

I'm not running either ICS or ICF on the network configuration.  I am however, connecting over a wireless connection with the laptop and a wired connection with the desktop.  When I connect my laptop through a wired connection, the VPN works. So it must have something to do with either the way my wireless is setup on my router or my laptop.  Any ideas?

your desktop (wired) and xp (wireless) are connected to the same router when you try to connect ?  are you getting IP from your local router or static iP? when  you connect your xp box with a wire, do you  have different vpn connection icon or you use the same as you use for wireless? are you using built in vpn client or any third party?

If I connect my laptop through the wired connection, I can connect over the VPN. If I stay on the wireless connection i cannot.  Bot the wired and wireless connections get their IP addresses from the wireless router through DHCP.  I'm using the Microsoft built in VPN client and only have one VPN setup on the laptop.

Still more information. I was able to connect from another wireless network.  So it's definately something with the way my home wireless network is configured.  It's setup to allow PPTP, IPSec, etc. as pass through - b/c it works when it's wired.   But when it's wireless it does not.
