Hi there,

i have a MACBOOK with OSX 10.4 installed that i want to connect to a 2003 share (on a DC)via VPN.

I have managed to successfully install and connect to the network using the CISCO VPN software.

when i use the go menu to connect to the server a prepopulated login screen appears with
Domain
Username
and password.

When i enter the AD credentials i get a message saying the username or passord are incorrect?

i have disabled the digitally sign communications option in the DC and have bound the mac to the network.

can anyone help?!

Before we go any further with this the big unanswered question needs to be addressed.  Can you connect to the share when you are directly connected to the network?  That is to say, is the issue only when connecting by VPN?  This will narrow down the cause of the issue and help diagnose.

Hi there, i have not tried this, however i seem to have solved the problem:

in the DCs security policy although i set "Microsoft network server: digitally sign communications (always)" from enabled to disabled, I left "Microsoft network server: digitally sign communications (if cleint agrees)" set to default.  I have changed this to disabled and now the OSX client can connect.

Note to others experiencing the same issue: you may have to disable BOTH policies in order to allow OS X clients to connect.

I apologize for not suggesting that.  I presumed you had done both.
