Hi, below is what i have

Remote A

Windows XP SP2, connected to an ADSL via a Draytek 2600G which is doing NAT

Main Office

Netscreen 50 Advanced 5.3 r3.0

What i want to do is create a L2TP with IPSEC using a Pre shared Key, how do i do this?
I have read varous documents, but cant get it working.

the error i am getting on the netscreen is that the Pre shared key may not match.

where do i set the type of security on the Windows XP client?

also i forgot to say i am using the native VPN client on the Windows XP Pc and not a remote client.
