I have a problem connecting to my workplace through remote desktop. I am getting error message 733 which is explained in the following link: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=168720
I have a netgear DG834GT router and using XP professional both at home and in the workplace. I have used the network connection wizard plus made several changes to the security as recommended by a colleague but this has not worked.
I have tried the following:
1/ On the Control Panel I have clicked on Network Connections
2/ I have clicked on Create a new connection in the Network Connections screen
3/ The wizard opens and I clicked Next
4/ I have selected the second radio button called Connect to the network at my workplace
5/ Next screen : I have selected radio button called Virtual Private Network Connection
6/ I have typed in the company name
7/ Next screen: I have selected the Do not dial the initial connection radio button
8/ Next screen: I have typed in the static IP address for our workplace router which is a Draytek Vigor 2800
When I click on finish, the log on screen appears. I then did the following:
1/ Click on properties
2/ Go to networking tab and change Type of VPN to PPTP VPN
3/ In the Security tab, I have changed from Typical to Advanced.
4/ In the settings button I have set data encryption to "Require Encryption" and then under "allow these protocols" ONLY Microsoft CHAP(MS-CHAP) and Microsoft CHAP Version 2 (MS-CHAP v2) have been ticked.
5/ I have clicked OK and then gone back to the log on screen
Sadly this resulted in error 733 message.
I am not particularly well versed in networking and therefore struggling on how to correct my problem. Does anyone have any ideas that might help?
