Error 789 VPN
When you try to use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection through Microsoft Windows 2000 terminal services client session, you may receive the following message: "Error: 789- The L2TP connection attempt failed because the security layer encountered a processing error while initial negotiations with the remote computer." A user can successfully establish a VPN connection from the terminal server console.
You may face this error while attempting to establish a client session by using Windows 2000 terminal services. It occurs even when you try to establish a VPN connection using Layer Two Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) from the terminal server to connect to a Windows 2000 server-based computer that is configured as a VPN server.
To resolve this error, you can use a pre-shared key on both ends of the VPN connection. The L2TP/IPSec feature also supports gateway-to-gateway VPN implementations by using a pre-shared key for Internet Key Exchange(IKE) authentication.
