Trying to get Client-to-Site VPN up from a Win 98 dial-up client.
Latest NW
client & VPN clients installed. Connects, Authenticates User, Enables
IP
encryption, and then gives a "Failed IPX WAN Negotiation " message.
Bought
both of Craig's books and have done the following after digging
through the
books, TIDs & postings so far:

1. Unbound IPX from everything on the client except the IPX- Novell
VPN and
the IPX/SPX - Novell VPN.

2. BM server Public NIC is set to Dynamic & Static NAT, with static
bound
from Private IP to Private IP.

3. Client Primary Logical Board and Frame Type for the IPX bindings
set to
802.3 (Same as binding on server) IPX is also bound to VPTunnel on
server.

4. Unloaded IPXFLT to make sure it wasn't a filter/exception problem.
Still
failed.

5. Deleted & recreated default rules & exceptions by deleting
FILTERS.CFG
and deleting rules in C1, running DSRepair, then running BRDCFG to
recreate
defaults. All other services & proxies work fine (few that are set
up).

6. Checked Netinfo.cfg for IPX binding statements. All seemed in
order?

7. Verified IPX loaded with RIP/SAP protocol.

8. Login Policy - Ensured VPN Service rule was created for all users
using
NDS Login.

9. Unloaded & reloaded IPXRTR.nlm. Still failed.

The only item I'm not sure of is when I run "Display Networks" from
the
console, I don't think I'm seeing the VPN network. I see the
following:

00000001 0/1 012096FD 1/2 0294FA7C 0/1

The Autoexec.ncf file in the BM server has the "SERVERID 294FA7C"
entry, my
other SBS server has the "SERVERID 12096FD", and the Inetcfg shows IPX
bound
to the Private NIC with an identifier of "1". Where's the VPN
network?

In NWAdmin under the Client-to-Site VPN tab, the WAN Client IPX
Network
Address is "DEADBEEF". This doesn't show up unless one of the above
is
really this network. Been beating my head against the wall for 3 days
now
with no luck. Any one have any ideas? TIA.
