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.

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.
