Apparently, the sound was, "uh oh".

For Windows 2000 you need to use computer certificates. Windows 2003 and XP
Pro can use preshared key which is best used for testing purposes. Preshared
keys are stored on the computer in clear text and harder to manage then
certificates. In Windows 2000 it is relatively easy to configure a CA to
issue computer certificates and can be done via Automatic Request in Group
Policy. Keep in mind that Windows 2000 VPN server will not work with l2tp if
the server is behind a NAT router. --- Steve

Wow. All I can say here is wow. Jason, this is not an appropriate
response for this type of problem.

The poster's question is fairly straight forward and can more than
likely be worked out here. I really don't see the need to be pushing the
OP to a $210 USD/hour consulting gig.

Also, if you're going to answer posts here, it would be nice if you
quoted some of the text of the original post so there is some context
for your response.
