VPN connectivity

By mnmrodriguez1 ·
Hi there I have a problem trying to stablish a connection from my Win 98 first edition machine at home to my Win NT4 domain at work.
The VPN server has installed Spk 6a. RRAS with all the patches and hotfixes and Ie5.5, the Server is a dedicated VPN server, I have no problems with other clients (NT,Me,Win98Se)making a connection.
My Win98 1stE machines has Spk1, VPN hot fix and other security patches downloaded from the Windows Update site, also Ie 5.5 installed, I have MSN 5.x also and varios apps. My problem is that when I try to start a VPN session after I input my user info and password for my domain I get disconnected from the server and get the infamous error 645 as a result. I checked my server's event viewer and the log says thatthe remote computer does not support the require encryption. I have gone trhu the Microsoft site and fallow a couple of thing that are suggested there like unchecking the use ecryption for password and use ecryption for data boxes in my 98 machine, also I have uninstalled and reinstalled DUN I even changed the modem, and no luck yet. Any suggestion will be helpful.
Thanks

Just a guess here, but by the error that is recorded in the event log on your server it sounds like your not using high encryption on your VPN connection and your server is set to force users to have a high encryption VPN session.

You need to download/install the 128 bit high encryption pack.

================

================

The other option would be to remove the option that forces 128 bit encryption. This would allow allow 40 bit and 128 bit clients to connect.

Hope this helps.


Good Luck!

The only answer may be Second Edition. We have users around the country, and have yet to make Win98 first edition work with PPTP/RRAS. They changed something in Win98 original, and there is no matching parameter set with NT other than possibly no encryption. Second edition works just fine.

Sorry about that.

1. Make sure in the connection settings that all the options on the client are configured as required by the server (Encryption, compression,...).
2. This one has helped me alot on win9x machines. Uninstall every adapter you have installed in the windows 98 machine then add them one by one (with a restart in between) starting by the Microsoft VPN adapter its should be the first adapter installed.
3. Make sure that in network controll panel you see a Dial Up Adatpter VPN Support #2.

1) This behavior can occur if the Require encrypted password option is enabled on the Server Types tab in the connection's properties, or an incorrect user name or password has been entered.

2) This can occur if the server has run out of licenses

3) Have you tried the resolutions in technet article: Q188141 ?

You've probably tried these, but...

Install the DUN 128bit encryption pack (not the same as IE 128bit upgrade).

Try setting the 'Require data encryption' checkbox in the VPN connection. This fixed some Win98 VPN connections on our network...
good luck!
