Step 6: Make the New VPN Connection
Now you can connect from your client to the server through the VPN connection using L2TP and MS-CHAP II.
- On the Windows XP computer, open the Network Connections window.
- Double-click the VPN adapter and log on with the correct user name and password. You should now be able to get in!
That does it for this portion of this lab. This is usually a tough one for my students, but I am sure that you can do it! If you get a 781 error (or any other errors for example 792), make sure that you have configured the automatic certificate correctly on the server and that you have installed a certificate on the client. Also, check if you assigned the Secure Server IP policy on the server.
