Nortel VPN Client Windows 7 error unable to reach server

I keep getting an error unable to reach server when using Nortel VPN client. The strange thing is sometimes I can connect and other times I get the above error. I have tried rebooting, even reinstalling and the problem comes and goes. Has anyone seen this?

  2. just 5 minutes later and VERY happy. The solution to disable the Internet Connection Servcie did work for me. I just was to stupid to find the correct service in my windows language version :-)
  3. Hi all,
    I was searching some weeks and read some informations and tipps on platforms like tom's hardware. Alss tipps are concentrated on the firewall but stopping the McAffee firewall for a short period makes no different. The failure appears constant with the message "unable to reach server".
    I had the idea to uninstall the SideAdvisor and did it successfull. :) :)

    Maybe this tipp helps anybody.

    Alls the best

    I found the Internet connection sharing was on turn it off issue will get resolved.
    You can check it if you have 2 LAN devices on your system.
