On my laptop, I cannot get any windows xp vpn connection to work.  My Cisco VPN connections work just fine.  I have tried from my home, from various other locations. I have rebooted PC, Modem/Router.  I have enabled/disabled network cards.  I have tried registry cleaner. I have tried completely disabling Norton 360.  I have tried everything I know at this point.

Cisco VPN Client uses a protocol suite called IPSEC, where as the Windows XP built in VPN client uses the protocol PPTP - They're completely different.

Windows XP cannot connect to IPSEC based VPN Servers - not without an IPSEC VPN client, like Cisco VPN Client.

My bad, Windows XP does, but only Service Pack 3.

It'll rave on about certificates though...

Have a look here:

Sorry, should have been more clear.  My XP VPN connections are all for PPTP only.  And I cannot get a single one to work.  Irregardless of location I am at.

Does the server your connecting to have PPTP enabled?

Is TCP port 1723 forwarded to the VPN server on its gateway?

Yes.  I have connected to these machines for years.  From this laptop for almost two years.  I am an consultant, so I connect to all the time.  The past two weeks, I have just been connecting to cisco vpn's.  Now, I need all the non-cisco vpn access.

I have resolved my own issue.  It turned out the "stateful firewall" was turned on in my Cisco VPN.  Once I turned this off, it resolved the issue.  Thanks for all the input though.
