SP2 Firewall question

would SP2 firewall allow a networked PC to be pinged but not allow a connection? I have been able to connect to my office LAN via VPN up till now. The only change I can think of is that we discovered the SP2 firewall was disabled, so enabled it. This evening, can ping but not connect. Would appreciate some help please.

Go into the firewall; Advanced; and "Allow" your VPN.

click here for an example of how to add a VPN port - about a third of the way down the page.

Just to confirm the link opens fine for me - so try it again.

It works perfectly on mine.

Just tried again and it's opening now - strange indeed. Will read and try and post results (tomorrow) thanks again.
