  • System configuration - Windows XP Home Edition, Version 2002, Service Pack 3

    The university for which my wife works permits remote access using NetDirect. We were able to use the service for some time, but now the error code listed in the title appears when we attempt to connect. It's followed by a Local Area Connection X Unplugged (where Connection X is, I think, the virtual LAN which NetDirect is attempting to establish). I've contacted the university help desk to determine if there are LAN configuration options, but they insist none are defined.

    Is this a security issue consistent with Service Pack 3? Are configuration options available that could address this issue?
