Re: Vista VPN issues
What happens is that my domain account gets locked out. I am connecting to
the vpn for a client, but I am still connected to my internal domain.
Accessing the resource via the fqdn does not help. The access to the remote
domain is fine, its my internal access that gets screwed up.
I have two Vista machines and one that is still on Windows XP professional
and the issue occurs on both Vista machines. I never have any problems when
connected via the Windows XP machine. I am going to have to reload my Vista
machines with Windows XP Pro if I can't find a resolution to this issue as it
is just taking to much time.
