Error 800 vpn connection

By bzibbo ·
I set up a vpn connection to remote to my desktop at work on both my wireless laptop and home desktop both with Windows XP Prof installed. The laptop and home desktop are on a shared network. I have a 2Wire DSL modem. I can vpn and remote desktop to work with my laptop, but receive the 800 error on home desktop. IP address has been checked and re-entered. Password checked. Firewall settings appear to be the same. Need advice on what to check next.
Thank you in advance for your expert advice.

vpn error 800

by hjrjolie In reply to Error 800 vpn connection

I have heard of Norton Internet Security causing a problem, if you have NIS try turning it off and see if it will connect. Maybe MS's built-in firewall too?

2 cents worth.

problem with 2 wire modem

by greglfield In reply to Error 800 vpn connection

I have seen the issue with Nortel VPN and port 50 being blocked by the modem. we have the 2 wire in the test lab and even after opening vpn (port 50) it will not allow it to pass. There must be an issue with the 2 wire modem. I can't find a setting on it to just disable it's firewall altogether, so we'll probably replace it with another brand.

Solution of VPN Error 800

by leyonchung In reply to Error 800 vpn connection

Go through with the simple steps and you will get rid of this vpn error 800.

1-Check out if you are using the correct server name as given by your subscribed VPN service provider

2-Make sure that you internet connection is working properly, if not then reset the adapter or modem, as the case may be.

3-Another method would be to ping the server. For this, click ???Run??? after clicking the ???Start??? button on the windows screen. Type ???Ping??? followed by the name of your VPN server or IP address. Press enter. You will come instantly come to know if the server is working or not, in the resulting DOS screen.

4-Look out if the network firewall of your system is blocking the VPN connection. If it is so, then open Port 1723 and enable Port 47 in the configuration settings for the firewall. If you are using L2TP VPN then ensure port 1701 I not blocked.

5-If any of the antivirus installed at your system is causing the problems in VPN connection than remove it or alternatively, add the the IP of remote client in its configuration settings.

6-If you are able to connect to VPN from your desktop but not from your laptop, it could be probably due to security software such as Microsoft OneCare that is quite capable of blocking GRE, uninstall it and check out the results.

7-Uninstall and reinstall the VPN client at your end, enter the provided username and password provided by your VPN vendor during the setup. If you are having problem with installing the software, seek the customer care support of your service provider.

8-Contact your server administrator if more than expected clients are currently using the VPN connection. Though, such an occurrence is rare.

9-If the problem still exists, make a request for VPN server security certificate verification.
