VPN server, Windows XP Pro, ordinary users can't log on, only administrator
Posted on 2011-03-21
I have configured Windows XP Pro sp3 to act as a VPN (PPTP) server to external users.
It's a small application that is running on the machine and doesn't warrant a server OS.
I can connect to the VPN as administrator, but not as a user.
When I connect as a user it verifies my username and password ok then immediately drops the connection saying that I don't have the right permissions to log on because of a security policy.
The users are all members of the administrators group and I had a quick look at the local security policy but couldn't see which option to change, and/or do the users need to be members of other groups?
I thought that putting them in the administrators group would be enough.
This is an easy question to somebody that knows the answer, but I need to sort it quick, so 500 points available if you know the answer, thanks.
