VPN Connection terminated “Reason 442: Failed to enable Virtual Adapter”

Problem :
When try to connect VPN using Cisco VPN Client software. Shown error : “Reason 442: Failed to enable Virtual Adapter”

Cause :
Many article said it is because Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) was enabled. This problem occur in Windows Vista but I’ve experience this in Windows 2003 Server.

Solution :
Try to disable “Internet Connection Sharing” Service and try to connect again. This should solved this problem, but i have no confirmation if it works in Windows 2003 server.
