All attempts to connect to VPN from WinXP or 98 clients now return
"Failed
processing encrypted network packet. Server VPN tunnel is not loaded
or
server is not resynchronized."

Just swapped out our switch to a gigabit unit and replaced the NICs in
both
our BM and SBS FileServer with Intel Pro/1000 MTs, driver version 7.5.
Both
servers are NW6.02, BM is 3.7SP1, and both servers show a good
connection at
1,000Mb/s full duplex. Time is synced. Ran DSRepair on both servers.
I
kept copies of all the original netinfo.cfg, tcpip.cfg, resolv.cfg,
hosts,
etc. files and can't see any glaring errors between the new and the
old. I
went through all the settings in inetcfg on both servers again and
couldn't
see any errors. The connection to the public nic does not go through
the
switch. All VPN services were working fine before the nic upgrade.

The swap of cards went without problems, re-bound the original IP
addresses
to the new cards, etc., but now I see the following messages even
after
several reboots:

On the BM server from Logger.txt:

The FileServer is on 192.168.0.1, the BM server on 192.168.0.40
(private)
and 65.40.ab.xyz (public). Normal internet access works fine.

I renamed the new board in the BM server to "PRIVATE" since it
replaced that
adapter. I did not swap out the "PUBLIC" card. On the FileServer, NW
named
the new card CE1000_1, so I left it at that. The card it replaced was

CE100_1. Could renaming the board back to the old name possibly fix
these
problems? SLP seems to be working properly, and the DA status shows
up and
running as well.

The part that leads me to think its a card/name resolution issue is
the "IP
address=100A8C0, Code=-11". What does this mean? Is the IP address
stored
in BM as some kind of hardware address? This is very frustrating.
Thanks
to anyone who can help.
