  • Win XP VPN client auto connects

    Hello all.
    I have an XP machine with the Windows VPN client configured and it works great!
    Only problem is that the user can NOT disconnect without the client reconnecting automatically. I had her modify most of the connection settings.
    We've deleted the connection and recreated it.
    NOTE: she's a remote user so I haven't had a chance to work on this machine first hand so I am not able view to all the details.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Is the Redial if dropped option checked on the Options tab of the connection?

      This doesn't solve the current problem, but if you must make a work-around you could try creating a connectiod via the CMAK and manually set it to not autoconnect. In theory, that should work... but in theory what you're currently doing should work as well.

        redial is not checked. I have been through every settings I can imagine. No other client in the office has this issue.
        It's weird, because every search result I find is people trying to have her problem, not stop it. The only way to restart the machine and not connect the VPN. Once connected it ALWAYS tries to reconnect.
