    Hi! Hope you can help. I connect to the Internet via AOL. I have set up a VPN through the VPN Wizard in Win 2000 to connect to my work desktop. I dial into aol first. I start the VPN connection via the shortcut, but I cannot connect. The only thing I get is an "Error 678 - There is no Answer". I have verified the IP address I am trying to connect to. I have TCP/IP and Client for Microsoft configured. There is no record of me making the attempt on the server side, and there is no other information 2000 give me. Any suggestions? Thanks in Advance, TSEngineer.

    Are you sure you're not blocking the request at the router level?

    What do you have setup for a VPN server at work or on your computer?

    Thanks for the responses, my first problem is solved, connecting. It seems that ZoneAlarm is the culprit for the connection problems, despite having the newest version installed (I found out later that on versions under 2.0 you cannot use a VPN connection). Now I have authentication problems which I can probably resolve. Thanks again for the responses! TSEngineer
