i'm trying to use Cisco VPN client, but i get the error:
Error 56: The Cisco Systems, Inc. VPN Service has not been started.
Please start this service and try again.
Of course the service is started; so that's not very helpful.
It's been working for years (two years), but today i go to use it and it's borken.
Some people have suggested that the Internet Connection Sharing service can interfere with Cisco and should be disabled; it already was.
Edit: Windows 2000 Professional
Have restarted the service, have rebooted multiple times, have manually run
ipsecdialer.exe, nothing ever appears.
