Error 806 only for Win7 VPN clients to Server 2003 RRAS PPTP VPN

Posted on 2011-05-10

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have a Windows Server 2003 PPTP VPN configured through RRAS. Windows XP and OSX clients connect perfectly fine, indicating the firewall is configured properly. No matter how I alter the authentication method on the Windows 7 native VPN client or RRAS VPN server side (to match), it always stalls at "Verifying Username and Password" and eventually spits out error 806. I am attempting to use MSCHAPv2, with it selected on both client and server side, to no avail. Can someone help?

But PPTP doesn't use IPSec, to my knowledge. And previously, using this same Server 2003 machine, Windows 7 clients could connect to the RRAS PPTP VPN without having to edit the registry. We did delete, then re-create the RRAS PPTP VPN, so there might be some settings that are not the same. Our users will flip if they have to edit the registry, and this didn't used to be the case. Any ideas as to why this might be occurring?
