    I have been using VPN connections on Vista for a long time and they have been
    working fine up until a while ago. When I try and connect to a VPN it comes
    up with a window saying "Failed to connect to NAME" and invites me to
    Diagnose, Try Again or Try a different location. I have not made any changes
    to my VPN connections and have tried 2 different VPN connections I have and
    they both won't work (They do work on XP so it is definately something with
    Vista). Also, the network icon in the system tray is stating that I am not
    currently connected to any networks when I am!! The Network & Sharing centre
    also states I am not connected when I am.
    Any one have any ideas as it is starting to become anoying not being able to
    connect via VPN when I have been able to do so in the past. Thanks

  2. Sounds like 3rd party software issue. Can you telnet VPN server port 1723?
    Or this search result may help too.
