    I recently upgraded my home pc to dual boot xp pro and win2k pro. Under Win 2K I can connect to my office VPN fine everytime, but can't connect at all under XP.

    The office lan is running NT Server 4. Also, I am able to ping the VPN server with no problems from the command prompt in XP.

    The error message is as follows.

    Error 800: Unable to establish the VPN connection. The VPN server may be unreachable, or security parameters may not be configured properly for this connection.

    Any suggestions?

    You might try going to the VPN properties, Networking tab and change the type of VPN from automatic to PPTP.

    I've checked/unchecked every checkbox that I could find in the Properties for the connection. I've even installed and uninstalled IPX/SPX protocol services, QoS Packet Scheduler, anything and everything that I could find in the network settings for XP. I'm at a loss, and no one that I've talked with can give an accurated description of an 800 error code. It's like a check engine light on a new exotic car.
