xp sp2 broke shiva vpn client

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.work_remotely (More info?)

Hi all,

After I installed XP SP2, I have lots of problem with my VPN connection.

90% of the time, I have to connect and reconnect again in order to bring up
the Remote Desktop conection.

80% of the time, the connection will drop and I have to reconnect again.
Like above, I have to reconnect multiple times in order to make it work.

In all instances, the VPN client shown that I have connected to the tunnel
and also got an IP address. However, the connection is actually not there.
I cannot access any network drive and I can't bring up Remote Desktop.

I have shiva vpn client verison 8.42p1. Any one has the same issue? Please
help!!!

BTW, if I remove SP2, it works like a charm. :)

Thanks.

Abel

    Hi Robert,

    Thanks to your quick reply.

    I have Comcast cable. BTW, I don't have the same issue before XP SP2.

    Thanks.

    Hi there.

    I recently had the same trouble on our network and came within a week
    of losing my job. Whenever I would hack registries and lower my MTU,
    things began to work. But as it turns out, the entire problem was due
    to a Windows 2000 Server automatic update. The update was a reinstall
    of the TCP/IP stack files in order to seal a security hole. That update
    broke our entire network. It was because of devices with differing MTUs
    and a LAN/WAN environment according to the MS KB article. To us, the
    problem surfaced as RDP/Terminal Services just giving a black screen,
    SQL Database replications and DTS packages failing, Active Directory
    replication failing, and other weirdnesses. The url to the Windows
    knowledge base article is here if it will help you:
    "http://support.microsoft.com/kb/898060/?" - but again, I can't be
    responsible for what you do, blah blah blah, cover my butt, etc. If it
    saves you from any more heart-ache and late night caffeine binges, I'll
    be glad to have been of service.

    Thanks,
