I'm trying to connect remotely to my work's computer. I was told by our IT guy to install VPN client 4.0.5(Rel). HOwever, since I have Vista on my laptop, there seems to be a compatibility issue. Does anyone know how I can resolve this? In the meantime, I downloaded VPN Client on to my home computer, which is still running on XP and I am getting an error message stating: Secure VPN connection terminated locally by the client. Reason 402: The Connection Manager was unable to read the connection entry, or the connection entry has missing or incorrect information. I have entered the host, group authentication and password. I have also entered a Connection Entry name, although I'm not sure if it is correct. Can anyone suggest anything? Thanks

I've managed to get 5.0.00 am I've managed to establish a connection. I'm sorry but I know absolutley nothing about remote access - how do I then access my work remotely? Do I have to enter an address in the address bar of IE? I kind of expected my desktop to look like my work desktop. I have no idea what to do now. Are there particular steps to take to get into a workplace?
