Vista VPN - Access to resources.

Unanswered Question
Mar 1st, 2007


We have several Vista Enterprise clients running client When attempting to connect via vpn, we occasionaly get 442 errors, but when connected some users cannot access any network resources. However if the user was to make any adjustments to the network settings of the vpn connection (e.g. uncheck ipv6) then network resources accessible. Also until then Network center shows thats its identifying network.

have tried connecting with ipv6 unchecked, but still the symptom's persist.

Have also replaced the client with latest beta, seems to be the same problem.

Any pointers to what I should check for?

Help greatly appreciated.



I have this problem too.
