Windows 2000 VPN / RRAS Problems
Posted on 2004-08-26
My company has a network of serveral Windows 2000 server machines. I have been logging onto the network remotely via VPN to do work from home; however in recent days I am now being refused login with the error:
Access was denied because the username and/or password was invalid on the domain.
When I'm at work my login/password works fine on all the machines on the network, I've checked in the Active Directory of Users & Computers against another user (lets call him Bob for explanation purposes) who is able to login fine via VPN and I cannot see any differences. The servers are setup to mirror the security settings across to each other.
We tried changing Bob's password and noticed the VPN would only connect with Bob's old password which gives me the impression something is not mirroring correctly or this is configured from somewhere else. Does anyone have any suggestions?
