> Problem: Can no longer create VPN Connections
> WAN Miniport (PPTP) is not in the RRAS ports list any longer. RRAS was
> working fine until some error happened with a program found in the temp

> WAN Miniports missing. The WAN Miniport (PPPoE), Direct Parallel (LPT1) and
> WAN Miniport (L2TP) are still present.
> Under Routing and Remote Access (RRAS) in the PORTS section the three above

> WAN Miniport (PPTP) has 128, the default, ports available and is configure

> Attempted Solutions:
> 1. Reconfigured RRAS on server.
> 2. Deleted Miniport. Completed by changing the device in Device Manager to
> Mac Bridge Port. Uninstalled the device. Restarted the server. Installed
> WAN Miniport (PPTP) using Devcon. Reconfigured RRAS on Server.
> 3. Even tried removing the RRAS all together and using the Incoming
> Connections setup that has worked before when moving things around. I know
> that Incoming Connections uses PPTP so I wanted to test the outcome.
> All of these attempts failed. Any information on this problem would be
