No, I do it all the time. Just to make sure can you ping the XP SP2 machine
through the VPN tunnel from the Vista laptop once you connect? Can you
connect to the XP SP2 machine from the Vista laptop while the laptop is
connected directly (wired or wireless) to the work LAN? Having the exact
error message would be helpful...
