VPN and NetBIOSGroup on WinXP Pro
Posted on 2006-11-16
I am trying to setup incoming VPN option into a WinXP Pro box, but am advised during the by the add-new-VPN wizrad option that the Routing and Remote Access service cannot be started - event 7002 - a dependent service cannot be found. Upon further investigation I see that it requires the NetBIOS protocol to be installed on that NIC. It is not there in the list of protocols and I cannot seem to add it.
Out on the web I found a registry entry HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NETBIOS (or similar) but it made no difference.
I have also gone into the Advanced settings on the TCP side of the NIC and said that I want to enable NetBIOS over IP but that made no deffierence either.
Please advise how I can resolve this.
