Hi newsgroup!

I am trying to create a new VPN connection from my PC(WinXP/Pro).
Entering the "New Connection Wizard", I select "Connect to the network
at my workplace", I arrive in the menue where is asked "How do you want
to connect to the network at your workplace?", and no one of the offered
connection types("Dial-up connection" and "Virtual Private Network
connection") are selectable, both are disabled ("grey"). I am logged in
as admin. My previous VPN-connections I set up disappeared, too.

What is going on, where is the problem!?

Bob, thank you very much for answering.
I can't proceed with Step 5 on
http://www.onecomputerguy.com/networking/xp_vpn.htm
because the two options(as already mentioned in my first posting):
"Dial-up connection" and "Virtual Private Network connection" are not
available, they are disabled ("grey").

Obviously something is wrong with your setup. Do you have your local
area network in operation?

Just look at what happened in California.

California is the bellwether state.

I know this is a little late, but in case anyone wants to know. I solved the
same problem on my machine by just entering my area code in the dial up
access screen. When it asks for dial up access account just enter your area
code and continue on. After that the other networking options will become
available. All I can say is that it worked for me.
Nothing else I tried worked.
I found this solution on the net. Hope this helps someone else too.
