I use a VPN to connect my home computer running XP Pro to both a Windows 7 computer and a Windows XP computer at work and it works seamlessly.

When I am on the road and use my netbook which runs XP Home, I can connect to the Windows XP computer at work, but not the Windows 7 computer.

Any ideas how to resolve the issue?

Is the Windows 7 computer configured to require Network-Level Authentication? Have you applied the necessary updates to your client system? –  Iszi Oct 8 '12 at 14:31
    
The Windows 7 machine and the Windows XP machine in the office are both on the same network. As far as I know, the Windows 7 machine is configured to require Network-Level Authentication and is updated. I base that on the fact that my Windows XP Profssional machine can connect to both office machines, but my Windows XP Home Netbook can only connect to the office Windows XP machine. –  John K.
