Reason 442: Failed to enable Virtual Adapter
You tried very hard and still unable to connect even after rebooting your machine. This has happened to me two times. First time this error got resolved however, I didn’t note down steps that were required to resolve this issue. Yesterday, while connecting VPN I faced with same error again and decided to jot down steps to get around this error ‘Reason 442: Failed to enable virtual adaptor’
Below are the steps that works perfectly on my machine with Windows XP operating system. Please don’t curse me for not using latest Windows OS :)
+ Enable CISCO Network adaptor from network connections
+ Right click on it ->Navigate to properties –> Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) from General tab –> and again Click Properties
+ Now set it to receive IP address automatically by selecting “Obtain IP address Automatically”
+ Press OK and again ‘Repair’ this connection by right clicking same Network adaptor.
+ Once this whole process completes, disable the same network adaptor
And voila! I could connect to my VPN successfully using CISCO VPN client. If there is any other solution to solve this issue then do let everyone know in comments below.
