Error 736 connecting using PPTP.
Posted on 2006-07-20
I am trying to connect to a VPN connection. Using Windows XP, and all default options. Receiving this error: TCP/IP reported error 736: The remote computer terminated the control protocol.
VPN server is SBS 2003 with SP1. ISA server 2004 non sp2. I have checked the RRAS settings with another known working SBS server. They all look ok. I have rerun the Remove access Wizard serveral time after deleted the RRAS configuration. The wizard runs successfully and reconfigures RRAS.
I have also check the ISA server settings with another known working SBS server. All ok.
I have disabled RRAS, rerun the Internet connection wizard, checking all options, rerun the RRAS wizard on the to-do list. Nothing. Usually VPN works out of the box.
I have enabled logging for RRAS server. I did notice something in the PPP.log file.
The control protocol for 8021, returned error 1168
 07-20 11:18:10:508: while making a configure result on port 325
 07-20 11:18:10:508: FsmClose event received for protocol 8021 on port 325
Also, when I do an ipconfig the PPTP adapter for dial is set to 192.168.11.2 instead of a local ip address. I think this may be the problem. In RRAS, it's set to route this ip address as well. I believe changing the address may solve my problem. Does anyone know how to do that?
