'Network connections' option greyed out

  as400man 17:45 21 Mar 2003

I am trying to add a new network connection using the connection wizard. I select 'Connect to the network at my workplace' (I will be using VPN)but on the next screen both types of connection are greyed out and I cannot go any further. If I select 'Connect to the internet' both network otions are avaiable on the folowing screen.
Maybe a service that is needed is disabled but nothing obvious. Any idea?
Many thanks in advance for your time and interest.

You say "I will be using VPN" as400man, if you have not got the VPN connection then you will not be able to connect the machines. By what you have said I take it that you have a server, if this is the case then your user account should be set up to allow a remote connection.

Note to do all of this you must be logged on as the Administrator, that is unless the Administrator has given you the rights to do this.

The problem was caused by having the Telephony service diasbled. Enabling and setting to automatic has fixed the problem. Thanks for the comments.
