This is driving me nuts!! I created a vpn connection on my windows xp pro machine. When I try to use IE6 it continually tries to connect through my vpn connection (I have a dsl connection already). I have set the internet connection properties to NEVER dial a connection, but it seems to ignore this setting. If I remove the vpn connection from the list of dialup/vpn connections it deletes the vpn connection! Any help appreciated.
