URGENT: XP VPN Configuration Stumper...
Posted on 2007-03-21
I am trying to enable VPN on a client XP Pro laptop, where the user has done some "cleanup" on his machine and disabled some tasks using a 3rd party program called WinTasks (sort of like a smart version of msconfig). That said, he managed to kill his local VPN client that he uses to connect to our server when he is remote. When I try to create a new connection by:
1. Go to My Network Places
2. Select View Network Connections
3. Select Create a New Network Connection
4. Select Connect to the Network at My Workplace
5. * THE VPN and DIALUP MENU IS COMPLETELY GREYED OUT***
which Is where the problem is. Any clue as to what is broken or how to fix this?
