Whenever I try to start CIPE on my Win2K laptop, a window pops up with this error message:
"Could not (de novo) start CIPE service due to overlapped I/O operation is in progress"
Any ideas why?
I've installed cipe-2.0.pre-15.wa-1.0-24.exe on my Win2K laptop.
A LAN connection appears in my "Network and Dialup Connections" window, called "CIPE VPN Adaptor.
I open the Properties of this Adaptor, and hardcode the IP address:
192.168.254.201/24, Default gateway = 192.168.254.200
I uncheck all the components of the adaptor, except Client for Microsoft Networks and Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
I connect my laptop to my ISP using a dialup connection.
There are 2 IP addresses returned by typing ipconfig in a Command box - the CIPE adaptor address (192.168.254.200) and the IP address from the ISP.
Then I press "restart" in the CIPE VPN Peer, found in the Control Panel.
The settings are:
Local IP Address: 0.0.0.0, Local Port: 6969
Peer IP Address: 184.108.40.206, Peer Port 6969 (It's the real IP address of a linux box, which has 2 network cards)
Local PTP Address: 192.168.254.201
Peer PTP Address: 192.168.254.201,
Action: Enable is selected
Static Key is added, matching the one on the linux box
Cipher is BLOWFISH, no encruption, timeout = 600
Routing targets: 192.168.10.0/255.255.255.0 ( the internal LAN of the linux box)
The CIPE VPN Peer says "Saving Adaptor Settings, then "Starting CIPE service", the hour-glass appears and about a minute later, the error message quoted above appears.
I used a CIPE-Installation.pdf guide for the Windows client, but could only find the guides in Danish or French. Can I have a URL to an English guide please?
Thanks for any help.
