Hi:

I need some help on setting up a Windows XP SP2 computers to allow a regular user (non priv) use VPN to access a external client... Everything is setup and works fine for Admin users but not for non priv users.

This is what I have:

Windows 2003 SBS Server
Netgear Firewall (FVS124G)

Windows XP SP2 workstation logs into Windows 2003 domain - no special security settings save what is needed to access resources in the domain.

1. Installed on Windows XP SP2 workstation is LinkSys VPN client
2. we have all the required information to log into the remote VPN
3. This works if one logs into the same workstation under administrator...  
4. When logged in under regular user it hangs up on "verifying network..." and never connects...

What priv would I need to give the user to get them to access the external VPN?

I don't really want to give them admin priv...

Thanks,
John

1.  more than likely the linsys VPN client is designed to work only as a local admin (bad design i know) and that is why it isn't working.
2.  you can use regmon and filemon to see what files and registry keys this software is using and then grant permissions to regular 'user' accounts to use these files/registry keys and you should be good to go.
