Couple of things you may want to try,.

first try the procedure on xp

Error 440: Driver Failure

Usually related to Deterministic Network Enhancer

DNE suggestion - you can manually add the service to the local area connection.

Control Panel - Network and Internet

- Open Network and Sharing Center

- Open Manage Network Connection

- Right click on the Local Area Connection

- Select Install

- Select Service

- Select Have Disk

- Select browse and browse to c:\program files\common\Deterministic Networks\DNE\dne2000

- Select Open


seems this message is driver related, type reason 440 bellow this link some times output of these messages helps in giving clues of the issue


Reason 440: Cannot start the driver. Make sure DNE is installed correctly. Make sure that _cvpndrva_ is installed correctly.

Description or Action:

Ensure that the DNE driver is loaded. Go to command prompt and type _net stop dne_. It should not be able to be stopped. However, if it cannot be found, then it is not installed. If installed, try _net stop cvpndrva_ and _net start cvpndrva_. This can't be done via service manager.

Note: Do not type the _ character when you enter these commands.

If above does not fix the issue, try un-installing and re-install the vpn client again, see if that resolve the problem, post results.

PLS rate any helpful post if it helps
