I have an interesting dilemma. I have new IBM t31 laptops with windows xp
pro SP1 installed with all the latest updates. To connect to our network
remotely we have a dial up VPN set up on a windows NT 4.0 server. The
laptops have no problem connecting to our network from home when they use
the VPn connection. They cannot however dial directly into our network.
the dial-up works fine on our windows 2000 and nNT 4.0 workstations. Any
help would be appreciated.

Hi Elizabeth,

Thanks for your posting here.

Do you mean that you enable the Dial-In function on a NT 4 server and the
Windows XP client cannot dial-in?

What is the detailed error message on the client?

Please also check if there is any error in the Event log.

The error message is 678 the remote computer did not respond. All I see is
that you first need to get to the internet before you can configure the VPN
to work correctly. This issue is that the a lot of these people dial in
thru the VPN to get to the internet as well as download there e-mail and
such.

Hi Elizabeth,

Do you mean that the client get the error when dial-up to Internet or
connect to VPN server after dial-up?

Please disable the Internet Connection Firewall in Windows XP and try again.

To disable the Internet connection firewall:

1. Click "Start", and then click "Control Panel".
2. Click "Network and Internet Connections", and then click "Network
Connections".
3. Right-click "Local Area Connection", and then click "Properties".
4. Click the "Advanced" tab, and then clear the check box under "Internet
Connection Firewall".

What is the result now?

Hi Elizabeth,

Would you please let me know the detailed steps that you connect to the VPN
server?

If you first connect to ISP, then connect to the VPN server, it works
properly?

Please run msconfig.exe to disable Startup Group and Third party services
on the Windows XP computer. What is the result?

You can refer to the following document for more information:
