Hello Margaret,

I'm nore sure if this is your problem, but I'll include this observation on the off chance it may help you:

I just configured (with help from this list) several Win2k laptops for a customer with Cipe and had a similar issue. Try a 'netstat -an' command. This should show a list of all the appropriated ports being used by TCP/IP and UDP. Do your Cipe ports show up there? If so, you won't be able to start Cipe as Win2k sees the ports as being in use. This typically happens due to some error in shuting down cipsrvr (or at least it did to me initially). I was able to get round it by either 'cipsrvr stop' and then trying again or simply restarting the computer to free everything up. I don't have a Win2k machine handy to recall if the error message that I got was the same as your or not so, again, I'm not sure this will help.

My best shot, hope it shakes something loose,


G'day Folks, 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? Details: 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:, Default gateway = 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 ( 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:, Local Port: 6969Peer IP Address:, Peer Port 6969 (It's the real IP address of a linux box, which has 2 network cards)Local PTP Address: PTP Address:,Action: Enable is selectedStatic Key is added, matching the one on the linux boxCipher is BLOWFISH, no encruption, timeout = 600Routing targets: ( 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.----------------------------------
