messanger and 3rd party VPN stop working with vista using PPPOE

Posted: 04-07-2007, 07:36 PM
stange and complex: i am using PPPOE ADSL modem at home for few years. using
MSN Messanger to chat and a Checkpoint VPN client to connect office. my ADSL
modem is configured to establish the PPPOE/PPPOA connection to my ISP (to
make the dial-up instead of a VPN dial up in the OS). on WinXP - evreything
works perfect.

But with VISTA - those two programs won't work and won't make connection !!
i have noticed that canceling the PPPOE connection made by the modem and make
a local VPN connection on the Vista Workstation will make those two programs
connect !

what Vista does differently from WinXP and how can this be resolved !!!??!!!
