VPN setup not available



I'm trying to create a VPN connection from a Win2K (sp4)
Wkstn, but the option is unavailable. I've modified the
registry by deleteing the RASMAN\PPP\EAP\25 and 26 keys,
uninstalled and reinstalled TCP/IP, run SFC, all to no
avail. Short of reinstalling from scratch, can anyone
point me at a solution?

I' tried that too, and still no luck. I swapped out the
NIC, thinking that that might be the problem, nope. Any
other thoughts?

Can you explain what "Wkstn" is?
Win2K (SP4) is you client. What are you using as the VPN Server ?
