over the vpn, when trying to remote in, i get the error..
this computer cant connect to the remote computer.

Try connecting again. If the problem continues, contact the owner of the remote computer or your network administrator.

the remote server is 2008R2. I tried remote from VPN from both xp and win7pro.

i am able to remote in into other servers OK.. so I know there is no problem with VPN.

The server in question is OK, and i am able to remote in from a non-vpn connection- no problems.

what other setting is missing? i am an admin on the remote server, too.
