Windows 7 VPN connection fails
Posted on 2009-07-01
I have a copy of windows 7 RC1 installed and I cannot seem to get the vpn to work. I am using the builtin vpn software to try and establish a pptp vpn to our windows 2003 server. I know the server is fine as all other clients (vista and xp) can connect fine.
but from the windows 7 machine it makes it the verifying username and password and fails with either error 619 or error 803.
I have tried disabling the firewall completely on the windows 7 machine but I still get the same error
if I look at the event log it shows 3 events
the user %username%
successfully established a link to the Remote Access Server using the following device:
Server address/Phone Number = xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
Device = WAN Miniport (PPTP)
Port = VPN3-1
MediaType = VPN.
The link to the Remote Access Server has been established by user %username%
the user %username% dialed a connection named Office which has failed. The error code returned on failure is 806.
