Reason 442 : Failed to enable Virtual Adapter

This Summer I had to go to my native place for some reason and I went home with my office laptop so that I can work remotely.After I reached home and tried to check my emails and some internal Sun sites, I could not connect to my VPN using Cisco VPN Client .So I immediately reached my PC Support guys and they could not help either.So I tried  googling for the problem,tweaked some settings in Symantec Endpoint Protection before getting to this link.This link has a very good desciption with nice screenshots.If you have also faced problem like me,you go ahead and visit this site.

After a quick restart, now I am able to connect to VPN and browse our local intranet sites.

In Summary(or for some reason the above link is broken) this worked for me,

  1. Start Menu
  2. Network
  3. Click on Network Sharing
  4. Click on Manage Networks in the new window opened
  5. Right Click on Cisco Adapter and click on Diaognise.
  6. Reset the Network adapter
  7. Now it says there is limited connectivity.Ignore it and restart the machine.
  8. Now try connecting to VPN.Thats all.Now you are connected.
  9. If you still unable to connect,Click here and search for the problem ;-).
