Windows 7: Error 812

01 Dec 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit
Error 812

Could someone please help me with Error 812 when trying to setup an outgoing VPN connection to my work?

Message written:
Error 812: The connection was prevented because of a policy configured on your RAS/VPN server. Specifically, the authentication method used by the server to verify your username and password may not match the authentication method configured in your connection profile. Please contact the Administrator of the RAS server and notify them of this error.

Thank you in advance !

Just had this issue. Make sure your user profile allows dial-in access (in Active Directory). You may have to check with your network administrator.
