I'm having trouble with the home side of a work/home connection. We had a PC crash a month ago, and our DSL modem was reinitialized. I have the PC reloaded now and am having trouble making the VPN connection.
I hit connect. I enter username and password. It attempts to secure the connection but after about 20-30 seconds it quits. I can't get past this point.
Here's a description of my system.
Windows XP with all Microsoft updates.
McAfee Total Protection
Cisco VPN Client 4.8.00.0440
AT&T DSL, logging in via PPPOE
Wireless router (currently not connected while troubleshooting, PC is connected directly to DSL)
It feels like the issue is either a DSL setting or a McAfee Firewall setting.
Any advice is recommended.
