error 619



Hello - I am trying to set up a VPN to a vendor from a
client machine in our local domain. I have set up VPN's
to this same vendor from workgroups and other domains,
however, when I try to setup VPN from this location from
any client I get error 619 "The specified port is not
connected". For the hell of it, i tried to establish a
connection from a DC in the same domain and it worked
fine. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance.

Error 619: 1. The port was disconnected (or Error 645, Dial-Up Networking
could not complete the connection to the server and Error 930, The
authentication server did not respond to authentication requests in a timely
fashion. The Event Viewer shows: Event id: 20073, Description: The following
error occurred in the Point to Point Protocol module on port: port number,
UserName: user name. The authentication server did not respond to
authentication requests in a timely fashion). When using VPN to access a
remote network, W2K clients mat get above errors but not win9x and ME
clients. This issue occurs because the VPN server hasn't registered in
Active Directory.
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
