Hi,
I am trying to set up a vpn using windows 2003 server. I set up the VPN server on the 2003 machine and  and vpn client on Win XP pro. I have a dynamic IP so i use a dns alias. I configured my router to allow port 1723 for vpn. Since i dont have a static IP this is the format my dns alias is http://mydomain.dnsalias.net/.
My question is why cant i connect, i'm getting a error 800. Second question...should i be using http://mydomain.dnsalias.net/ for host name or http://mydomain.dnsalias.net:1723?

Please help
thank you,
a

did you try to conenct to that server with IP insted of dns name, maybe your dynamic DNS is refreshing slowly. Check your dsl/router/modem if it supports VPN.

This article was previously published under Q319108
SYMPTOMS
When you try to establish a virtual private network (VPN) connection, you may receive the following error message:

Error 800: Unable to establish connection


CAUSE
This issue may be caused by a router that has outdated firmware. For example, this issue may occur if you are using a Cisco router with firmware that is dated 2000 or earlier.

To verify that this is the cause, look at a network trace. The Cisco device advertises a 0 window size in the TCP handshake on port 1723.
RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue, contact the manufacturer of the router for possible upgrades. For information about how to contact the manufacturer, click the appropriate article number in the following list to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
