    Can anyone help me with the following problem?

    I am using W2000 SP4 at home to connect to my company's
    office server, which runs NT 4.0 server.

    After I establish dial up connection I attempt to
    establish a VPN connection to the same server.

    When I did it for the first time, it worked just fine, but
    then the VPN connection stopped establishing. After a
    couple of minutes of displaying 'Verifying username and
    password...' message, the connection wizard
    responds : "Error connecting to [connection name]
    Disconnected. Error 619. The specified port is not
    connected". 'More Info' button responds with: "619
    Restart your computer to make sure that all recent
    configuration changes have taken effect". Alas,
    restarting the computer does not change anything.

    I spent serveral hours with this problem and only managed
    to fix it by reinstalling W2000 on my home computer. The
    problem went away. But recently I started getting these
    messages again (probably it started after installation of
    SP4) and can not establish the VPN connection.

    Is there a way to fix this problem without reinstaling the
    system again? What port is not connected and where is it

    Thanks in advance to those, who can answer.

    2.You get this message when connecting via cable modems, dial up DOESN'T
    have any issues.

    Resolution: 1) This problem most likely is secure issue such as unsecured
    password. So, check the settings.
    2) It could be the hardware issue. Try to re-setup the device or download
    the new driver or just reset the devices such as modem and router.
    3) Reapply the service pack
    4) If the RRAS is in a domain network, add the VPN to the appropriate group.
    To do this, go to Active Directory Users and Computers>domain name>Users,
    double-click the RAS and IAS Servers security group. Select the members and
    add the VPN server to this group. 2) Type netsh ras add registeredserver at
    a command prompt (registeredserver is vpn server name), and then press
