I'll describe the problem:
I try to add a new VPN connection in Vista (Ultimate). I do define
that it is NOT a dial up connection, but a VPN connection going over
my network connection. I can define the remote host, the username and
password, etc. But Vista forces the connection to become a dial up
When going to Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections I
see that in the icon it is clearly marked as dial-up, it is placed in
the dial-up group, and when I view the properties of the connection,
on the General tab, it says, under Connect using: Modem removed. In
the Phone number text box, I can find the host address I entered
In the Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections panel,
it says Unavailable - device missing.
And I did manage to get it working after my initial Vista install. Yet
after some days, after a reboot, Vista had switched the connection to
being a dial-up connection.
