We have a strange issue. We are using VPN client to connect. It works fine on my XP laptop, but on a desktop, with the same profile, it fails.
This is what happens:
Connects to server
Asks for user id and password
User id and password is entered.
It then sits there saying 'negotiating security policies' and never connects. It eventually times out.
We see that it stop the windows IPSec service. It also seems to break the windows networking, as we cannot ping anything, even the default gateway.
We have turned up the logging but there is nothing obvious.
Any suggestions appreciated.
