Cannot connect thru Virtual Private Networking (VPN) in Windows* 98, though it works in Windows 95 OSR2
VPN is not installed properly
Remove and re-install all VPN components.
Go to the Control/Network Properties
Verify that a Dial-up Adapter #2 (VPN support) and the Microsoft Virtual Private Network Adapter are not listed. If they are, remove both of them by highlighting each one and clicking Remove. Once that is done, click OK. Do not restart if prompted to.
In Windows, click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel and then click Add/Remove Programs:
1. Select the Windows Setup tab and double-click on Communications under Components.
2. Uncheck Virtual Private Networking and click OK.
