VPN error on XP Pro - TCP/IP CP reported error 2 - The system cannot find the file specified.
Posted on 2006-06-06
The error reported is on a Dell Dimension 4600 with XP Pro (With all the latest updates) when attempting to connect a vpn connection (through a NIC)
I can connect this VPN connection from other computers, but not this one.
I cannot connect this computer to any other VPN connections - Same error
After rebooting, when connecting to a vpn, the first error message is "TCP/IP CP reported error 31 - A device attached to the system is not functioning."
Then any other attempts will bring back the merror message "TCP/IP CP reported error 2 - The system cannot find the file specified."
I tried with another NIC, same error
I removed the Integrated NIC from Device manager, reinstalled it; same error
I removed the entries in the registry under; KKLM/... network cards: Same error
From what I read on the Web, people have reinstalled XP without resolving the issue?
