VPN connections fail after 1 min.

By cmando ·
I have a windows XP Pro Computer that connects to the internet when traveling via VPN from Hotels with high speed services. I can connect to my network and connect to my Lotus Notes 5 server and open my mailbox. However, when I try to open mail my VPN times out and shuts the VPN down. According to our engineers the problem is not at the home office. Any ideas?

Does the VPN work correctly from a non-hotel wireless network?

You have have to configure your laptop to the hotel's wireless network. They usually have instructions on accomplishing this.

Does Internet browsing work on your system while at the hotel?

Does it gives you an error to why the connection times out? There could be several problems, one being that any router cannot write to its routing table.
