KNOWN ISSUES WITH MICROSOFT CONNECTION MANAGER 1.2----------------------------------------------------------------------    * If you are running Windows NT 4.0, you must manually configure Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) for your virtual private network (VPN). To configure PPTP for VPN on Windows NT 4.0:  1. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then      double-click Network.  2. On the Protocols tab, click Add, and then click Point To Point      Tunneling Protocol.    3. Click OK.   4. In Number of Virtual Private Networks, enter 1.   5. In the Remote Access Setup window, click Add.   6. In the Add RAS Device dialog box, select VPN1 - RASPPTPM, and      then click OK.   7. Select VPN1, and then click Configure.   8. In the Configure Port Usage dialog box, select Dial-Out Only, if      it is not already selected, and then click OK.   9. Click Network and make sure that TCP/IP is selected and then      complete the installation. * If you are running Windows NT 4.0 and are using a Connection Manager service profile that requires Dial-Up Scripting, you must install Windows NT Service Pack 3 or later. It is recommended that you install the latest upgrade (currently Window NT Service Pack 4). If you have problems with Connection Manager that you cannot resolve using the Connection Manager troubleshooting Help, uninstall RAS, re-install it, and then re-install the Windows NT service pack. Verify in RAS that VPN1 is configured for "Dial-Out Only." (See the above procedure for the method for configuring VPN1.)* On Windows NT 4.0, if you try to establish more than one connection, you might see the message, "The modem is not configured properly." This sometimes happens if you try to dial too quickly, or if you start Connection Manager when a connection has already been established using Dial-Up Networking. Use one connection at a time. * If you are running Windows NT 4.0 and you change the Disconnect If Idle setting, the change will not take effect until you quit Connection Manager and restart it. * If you want to install a Connection Manager service profile on a computer running Windows 98, you should uninstall the VPN1 adapter before installing Connection Manager 1.2. Connection Manager installs it but may not be able to reinstall over an existing VPN adapter. * Connection Manager does not support displaying a terminal window. * If you use direct VPN connections, you cannot use Microsoft Windows CE software from the desktop.
