Urgent: Help Configuring VPN Server on Win2K

I had to install a new hard drive on the server, and now need to refresh my memory on how to set up VPN on the Windows 2000 Server.

Terminal Services is enabled, and all allowed users have Allow Logon to Terminal Server box checked.  When I configured Routing & Remote Access, I unchecked Enable this computer as a router (because this network is behind a Linksys Router); it is only enabled as a Remote Access Server.  Under IP properties of the server, I have Static Address Pool with three IP addresses available.  Under DHCP Relay Agent, I have 192.168.1.1 selected as the DHCP Server.

The client computer keeps getting error 800 - Unable to establish VPN connection.

I just realized what was not working.  I was trying to test the connection by, first, logging in remotely to another network via VPN, and, second, trying to log in from that network back to my local network via VPN.  So I receive error 800 at that point.  When I left the building and actually went to another location where the second network is located and tried to log in from there to my network, it worked fine.

So the VPN on the server is probably configured correctly.  Now, the question is:

Before I replaced the hard drive on Win2K, I was actually able to have a simultaneous connection to another VPN and from there back to my VPN.  I cannot remember how that was set up though.  Any ideas?

The first link does not apply, because the router works fine.  I'll have to look through windowsnetworking.com to see if they have anything about simultaneous back-and-forth connection.

It should not make any difference if you are logged on via another VPN first.

Are there any restrictions on the source/location of the VPN client connection?

MashaCPAAuthor Commented:
No restrictions.  In fact, it is the same client computer.  The only difference is whether I go to that client computer physically in another building and log in to VPN from there, or stay in my building, log in to that client computer via VPN and then try to log in from there back over here.

Have you tried this again since you sucsessfully logged in via the local logon?

Can you establish a VPN connection from the VPN server when logged into the server locally (or can you ping the rebuilt VPN server from the other VPN server)?

I'll have to try this after hours today or first tomorrow morning - they have XP on the other end, so I can't bother them right now.

I'll let you know. Thanks.
