    I currently work at an office with a network set up with VPN access. I set my laptop (compaq presario with XP) up with the VPN settings. I am able to connect when I am at work as well as when I am at certain places (friend's house). However, my own home will not connect. I have Qwest service and an Actiontec router. The most frustrating part is that I've been able to connect in the past (about 3 times 2-3 months ago). Now, I am stil able to connect everywhere else - but not at home :confused: . I get the ambiguous "error 619" which is not only vague but could result from any one of a million reasons.

    Does anyone have any idea what is going on and who (i.e. Qwest, Actiontec) would be at fault (and could fix).

    Thank you,
    Katherine

    Access your routers configuration page...I beleive it's 192.168.0.1

    Goto advanced configuration and make sure VPN passthrough is enabled. If it is, try setting up the VPN connection again using the Network wizard and plug in the information needed to connect to your work. May be just a firewall blocking the outbound traffic. What firewall are you using? Windows or third party? Have you made any changes that you can recall since the last time you connected?

    Oh...just read that the PPTP passthrough is always on. Just needs to be on for IPSec and L2TP.
