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.

Hello,

How many network cards do you have in W2K?
If more than one: Is the default gateway in the adapter for connection to PPTP server well defined?

There are two network cards, but one is disabled so all traffic goes only through the one.

Hello again,

Please try this:

Goto Control Panel->Network Connections.
Select Advanced options in menu then click Advanced configuration.
Now, move your live adapter to up position.
And try connection again.

The adapter is already at the top. This issue has been resolved by a reboot of the server. ??
