Hi Microsoft Fans -
I have a Windows 2000 PRO SP4 machine.
If I create, via network wizard, an "incoming connection" it seems to vanish after a reboot. I'm not sure if it vanishes just by logging off & on again, but I can check. The system is remote to me, and I have a tiny window of opportunity on it.
To create the incoming connection icon:
I Go to:
-My network places.
-Make New Connection
-Accept Incoming Connections
-Pick my modem
-Choose either allow or not allow vpn connection, as per my whims.
-Choose users allowed to call in
-Pick network components (tcp/ip, etc)
-Click "finish" button.
The icon has been created. Now if I reboot, the icon seems to vanish and I have to re-create the whole bloody thing.
One side note : The machine in question is running terminal services.
Unfortunately, I don't have much access to this *remote* machine.
What I'd like to do is get a lot of suggestions, then test.....as opposed to try each idea individually as it comes along.....that's just the nature of this one.
Thanks a billion, folks. (okay, 500)
