VPN works from XP Pro but not from Windows 2000
Posted on 2007-10-17
I am logging into a remote VPN using Windows XP Professional VPN client. I am authenticating on the remote server, so GRE and TCP1723 are fine. When I Try and setup the VPN client on a Windows 2000 Server machine though, it won't connect to the same server using the same networks. I have ensured that I have changed the VPN networking properties in the 2000 client to PPTP and unchecked LCP extensions, but no luck. The error it gives is 618 Connection Closed, which is the same error given on a Windows XP machine with the firewall turned on. There is no firewall on the 2000 server machine, and I have turned off the Symantec AV Corp edition.
