VPN - Has anyone gotten it to work

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Networking' started by Stewart Saathoff, May 26, 2006.

  1. Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone has gotten Vista to work with VPN's yet. I have
    tried to connect to PPTP and IPSec VPN's, but NOTHING works. It doesn't
    even tell me why the connection failed. I look in the event viewer and
    there is nothing to be found...

    Any insight would be appreciated. All of my VPN connections work with the
    built-in XP client or the Cisco Client...

    - Stewart

  2. If it helps, get the XP style settings up so you can see the settings more
    clearly.

  3. And how is a shortcut to the Ethernet options gonna help?
    I could easily access this without cluttering my desktop by clicking Start >
    Network > click "Network Center" on the toolbar and click "Manage Network
    connections" in the left pane.

    Stewart, this article might better help you troubleshoot your VPN problem:

  4. Some people find it easier using native settings in XP - I still find it
    easier to do it this way then faff around in the Network Center.

  6. This has to do with Wireless LAN's, not VPN's...
