I need to know if it's possible to get 2 XP Pro machines to VPN together?
No server setup. Just a workgroup - both machines have comcast as a provider
for the internet. Both machines at their home locations have US Robotics
(model 8300) cable routers for internet sharing. I did all the basics (setup
ipsec, created a vpn group,, enabled routing and remote access. Checked that
port 1723 and GRE 47 were operational both through my Mcafee firewall and
the router at both locations) successfully pinged the assigned address of
each router from each location but when connecting a long pause followed by
a 800 connection error can not connect to remote computer. Again can two XP
Pro computers VPN together???
Any help is greatly appreciated . . . Thanks in advance

Assuming you are willing to use PPTP, try these references:

What do you mean by get 2 XP Pro machines to VPN tog.? Are you asking if
VPNclient-VPNserver setup can both be XP pro? The error 800 is generally got
when the VPN client cannot reach the VPN Server.

Well, what problem(s) are you having not getting this to work? What error message(s), if any?

Be specific so others can help you...
