    stange and complex: i am using PPPOE ADSL modem at home for few years. using
    MSN Messanger to chat and a Checkpoint VPN client to connect office. my ADSL
    modem is configured to establish the PPPOE/PPPOA connection to my ISP (to
    make the dial-up instead of a VPN dial up in the OS). on WinXP - evreything
    works perfect.

    But with VISTA - those two programs won't work and won't make connection !!
    i have noticed that canceling the PPPOE connection made by the modem and make
    a local VPN connection on the Vista Workstation will make those two programs
    connect !

    what Vista does differently from WinXP and how can this be resolved !!!??!!!
