Has it ever worked? VPN Client is not supported on any Windows server, and especially not in a Terminal Server session because when launched, the VPN client can block all external LAN traffic to the very machine you are accessing remotely

What you need to do is install Cisco Systems VPN Client 4.8.02 (There is a copy on the AO CD). In addition to this, you need to ensure that the Terminal Server Console (Session ID = 0) is logged into the Desktop at all times (setup to autologin and autolock if you need to).

I have implemented VPN Client 4.8.02 on many (at least 12) terminal servers and it is ROCK SOLID and has worked with MYOB AO, MYOB AE/Sol6 and BGL.

The only issue with 4.8.02 is where the VPN Client will return a "User Authentication Failed" error to the initiating application (eg: MYOB AO) if trying to get the app to connect from a User Session, even though a manual connection works fine from a session.

The solution to this is to ensure that the Console (SESSION ID = 0) is logged on to the desktop when the app is connecting to the VPN Client. It is also possible to have the VPN Client GUI open (in the disconnected state) within the Users' session while the app is trying to connect to the VPN Client, without needing the Console Session ID 0 logged in.
