VPN failedd to connect with windows vista

I bought new Laptop with windows vista business.
Cannot connect through VPN to my office which I can through other (old) laptop with windows xp.
While trying to connect, it shows "verifying user name and pasword...." and after that it says "failed to connect to vpn connection. then it has three options : diagnose, try again, try different connection.

I have norton antivirus running. I have added VPN server IP in trusted websites but still not luck.

Which VPN are you using? PPTP, L2TP with IPSEC, specific brand client, ....
Are you in control of the concentrator so that you can check it's logs?

Hi PwerIT:
Thanks for taking part to resolve this issue.
I was out for few days, now back.
Well the icon in Network connections says "WAN Miniport(PPTP)" under connection name.
When tried to connect it gives error like: "Error 732: Your computer and remote computer could not agree on PPP control protocols."
When I use Windows XP I dont have to wory anything and it just connect. but now i am using windows vista.
I have no idea about server side.
Thanks again.

I dont know, and I cannot find the setup info on sever side. Is there any other vpn client (available free) which I can try on my machine. My operating system is Windows vista.

Ah OK, PPTP.
Microsoft killed MSCHAP v1 authentication in Vista. You need to use MSCHAP v2. You could use PAP or CHAP but these are much less secure.
So you'll need to enable MSCHAP v2 on your VPN concentrator / server. You definitely need access to the server side to resolve this.

Thanks PowerIT, as I said I dont have access on server side, its mean I cannot try this thing.

PowerITCommented:
Can you ask someone at the server side to enabel MSCHAP v2?
Or is this impossible and do you have to work around it? Because could be impossible.

I will try but it will take days to spread my word on server side. I will get back as soon as some change happens.
