I was always able to use XP and create VPN accounts with no issues, now with Vista when I create a VPN account the usual way, it will not connect, I get a weird PPTP error...

Ok this may be caused by issues with your firewall settings. Further, are you trying to Connect to Vista from an XP Machine? Connect to Vista machines, or connect to a private network with vista being used as the client.

In the first scenario. make certain that the LLTD responder service is installed for XP to connect to Vista. You can get it here:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;DisplayLang=en

Furthermore, Turn off any firewalls on BOTH ends of the VPN, and attempt to connect then. If successful this would mean that your default firewall settings do not allow the connection to be made. You can see what services are running in over the network by opening the command line and typing: netstat -a

Make a note of the Computer's IP address. Both the one you want to connect to and the one you are connecting from. I don't know for certain what Port VPN uses, but that will be very important in determing the problems you have stressed here.

When you determine the correct process and network port that is in use for VPN you need to make certain that service and Port are opened and allowed in your Firewall. This issue might be better explained in The Networking Forum.

uhaligani,

I believe that the Items you refer to are geared towards Corporate Environments. Although Elements of these services may be found in Retail/OEM systems, VPN Support is Built into Vista Business and Ultimate Versions. And Symantec, along with others, will soon provide Product Wide support for VPN services.

It is likely, although not gauranteed, that PC Anywhere will provide VPN Solutions. This is a well known Symantec product that works quite well.

And jgadrummer,

Please Post a Screen shot of the Error you recieve, HOWEVER, be carefull not to reveal passwords or your Public IP Address, That is no one's business but your own. I just want to know what the error is so I can help you fix it.

Well, my home laptop runs Vista and I need to connect (via VPN) to a work server which is running Windows SBS 2003 and Windows Server 2000. Xp was fine but now Vista will not connect.

Please be aware that the Vista uses LLTD responder service and that needs to be used on the XP and 2000 machines and may also require some type of port forwarding.
