Hello!

I have a problem with my VPN connections on Windows Vista. When I setup the VPN connection it works just fine, but when I reboot the comuter the connection simply disappears. So I have to make a new one.
I suspect that something in my group policy is the problem, but I can't figure out what.

Any tips or guiding lines, where I shold look in th GPMC?

Thank you.

Hi, do you have UAC enabled?

To disable, goto control panel, user accounts, and click on Turn User Account Control on or off and select off.

I tried that, it's still same.

I'm almost certain it is the froup policy. When GP is not applied th connection is still there, when I run gpupdate.exe /force, the connection is gone.

Anyone had a similar experience?

Solved the problem. The problem was in the group policy in Windows Settings ->Internet Explorer Maintenance -> Connection -> Connection Settings. I had enabled delete old dialup connections.

Thanks for your time.
