Guys this may blow your mind, I still think my cable modem from comcast has something to do with it though. (smc8014 the old 8013 let me vpn no problems)
When i try to connect VPN to the 2k server, I get a message that it is veryfying user & password, but never connects. This has been my headach for about a week,
TONIGHT, (Lets call syste server system 1 & the other connect 2)
I setup a vpn client connect from the server to a dsl static ip i have setup directly nect to it, by mistake I cliked on the server vpn to connect to to the other end, while that was athenticating, I cliked on system 2 client connection and like clock work it connects.
I did this about five times straight, everytime I do this it connects to the server fine
when I don;t do this it just sit there veryfying user & password and never lets me in
My question is also, what happens that i can't see when I attempt click to connect. it seem like this is forcing something open that allow me to connect where I normally could not.
