VPN Error

I am testing a VPN to our network and I am getting this error:

"One or more requested network protocols did not connect successfully.

TCP/IP connected successfully.

IP/SPX or compatible CP reported error 733: Your computer and the remote computer could not agree on PPP control protocols."

What is wrong?

if you don't use IPX/SPX, remove them from both computer. this page may help, http://www.chicagotech.net/raserrors.htm

Error 733: the PPP control protocol for this network protocol is not available on the server.  

1) Ensure that the TCP/IP protocol is installed on your RAS server and that the TCP/IP protocol is selected in the Server Settings of the Network Configuration option of the Remote Access Setup dialog.
2) If you have the "Use DHCP to assign remote TCP/IP client addresses" option selected for the TCP/IP protocol in the RAS Server Settings, then ensure that you have installed DHCP and that it is not disabled.
3) Ensure that all of the bindings for TCP/IP are enabled in the Bindings tab of the Network dialog of the Control Panel. Be sure to inspect the TCP/IP Protocol and WINS Client (TCP/IP) bindings for all adapters, all protocols, and all services. If the TCP/IP bindings are corrupt, you may have to reinstall TCP/IP and or RAS in order to clean up the bindings.
Can you provide more details?

Why are you using IPX/SPX do you have any Novell servers??
What device is the VPN server? Router? Windows box?
What protocol are you trying to use L2TP or PPTP?

Why are you using IPX/SPX do you have any Novell servers?> I dont even know what IPX/SPX is. I just set up a connection in Server 2000 and tried to connect and it did this.

What device is the VPN server? Router? Windows box?> Just have a NIC card with a static IP using RRAS.

What protocol are you trying to use L2TP or PPTP?> Both, I dont care.

I connected from another remote location, just this location doesnt work. Maybe it is because Im on Server 2000?
