  1. Hello all.

    I have a VPN question?

    What does the error msg. "Failed to establish a secure connection" implies or means?

    The above message is being received after entering username and password for authenication when attempting to connect via VPN.

    I'm using Nortel Networks VPN Client.

    I had used Cisco VPN as well, and have received the same above message.

    Seeking an explanation and/or answer.

    Jboman.

    It means that something went wrong. It is a very generic error message and pretty useless. You should try to get some more detailed log information from your client or the server.
