I am unable to log on to my work VPN at home but can from other locations.  Slingshot have been unable to provide any help or insights.  Has anyone had a similiar problem or have any insights.  Many thanks

What kind of machine?
Is the computer that works in other area's the same machine?
what type of account are you on?

I have had a number of VPN's running over slingshot with no problems at all.


Get easy to use, easy to install Norton antivirus protection against advanced online threats (affiliate link).

Bumping this thread as I have the same problem.

The computer I am using is an laptop running windows 7. The VPN uses the Cisco client. It works fine everywhere else that I have used it (including broadband in hotels / telstraclear broadband / tethered to my vodafone mobile. If I try and use it over a slingshot bband connection the VPN gets terminated 'by the client' very quickly (i.e. before it even connects and asks for credentials).

Any thoughts appreciated!

I used to have windows PTPP VPN over slingshot and everything worked fine.

Is there any logs from your laptop or from server? It can break connection on number of reasons.
