Using a Windows Vista Enterprise edition (32bit) on labtop.
We have a VPN setup for our office network using Windows 2003 Ent. servers behind a Cisco PIX firewall. The PIX firewall handles the VPN connection from remote users.

On Windows XP the connection works when remotely connecting to the VPN.
Type of VPN : 'Automatic'
Requires data encryption with user/password
TCP/IP , Client for Microsoft Networks used

The same connection setup on Vista OS does not work. It connects to the server, but during the process of authenticating username & password, it fails. It does not give any specific reason for failure of connection.
