I've installed the beta version of Nortel VPN for Vista and I am getting a timed out response, stating that the Remote server is not responding.
The firewall doesn't seem to be blocking access and I'm wondering if there's another setting that I'm missing to get connected.
When I run the same settings from an XP box, I have no problem.

I tried that too, unfortunately it didn't work.
I've even taken down the whole firewall to make connectivity and didn't get a response.

As it's a 3rd party product. I would suggest to check with that vendor for the problem.

I got the Nortel to work great when using a LAN to connect my laptop. However, when using my verizon ev-do card - I can surf the web great, but the Nortel VPN client will not work - error code requests to check the firewall.

I have VISTA Business running on my laptop and have attempted to connect to my company's VPN via the Vista VPN Client and it hangs on verifying username and password. I have tried this on 3 different computers (both VISTA) with no success. I do have an XP machine at home that I was able to connect with.

Did you check the connection properties of that VPN connection?
And what VPN server is that? 3rd party VPN server may got compatibility problem with Vista.

Sorry, I am not quite understand your problem. Are you making VPN connection from XP? Connect to where?
Sometimes, the problem may related to firewall setting.

the issue is an Vista desktop is trying to be the server for VPN. the XP laptop is trying to connect to the vista throught VPN. The vista desktop never reconises that it is connected wile the XP can see the files but gets "access denied" error message. the firewalls are disabled and the lltd is installed on XP. they can network but not hook up on VPN. the XP reconise it is connected but only receaves 32 kb.
