I have Win2K Pro installed on my notebook and use it for dial-up from home to the corporate LAN. I can dial-in using both a roaming number and a local access number. The roaming number works like a charm; username/password verifies, registers computer on domain, authenticates, boom, in....
Using the same configuration but only changing the dial-in number to the local number, username/password verifies. But while trying to register, computer on domain will timeout with a TCP/IP 718 error.
I have been told that there are separate routers for the roaming dial-in versus the local dial-in number and with Win2k that there is an issue with Win2k and the router. People that still have either Win95 or 98FE/SE can dial-in to the local number just fine. I guess I was just wondering if you had heard of any issues with Dial-up Networking in Win2k that are specifically router related?
I'm sorry, I haven't ever seen this problem, even though I do regularly use Windows 2000's dial-up. As a work-around, you could configure your primary number as an alternate. If it works, great. If it doesn't, you've eliminated that possibility as the source of your problem. Good luck!
