Setting up a VPN

By FIFboxer ·
I had inadvertently deleted my VPN connection in the connection manager in Windows XP. I still have the shortcuts on my desktop, however they are not working since the targets are deleted. I went into the connection manager and attempted to create a new VPN connection via the Connection wizard, but when I get to the option for setting up a VPN, it is shadowed and will not allow me to do anything with it. CAn I not set up a VPN via the connection wizard? Is something in the local security policy preventing me from doing this? I am not logged on into the domain at my work, but rather I am logged into the computer I need domain access to create the connection?

You need to talk to someone

if this PC that you are working on is part of a Domain and you are logged on locally. You haven't sufficient priveleges to allow that feature. It is probably part of a Policy that is being enforced. See your Administrator to get it sorted out for you.
