Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Here's the deal: I use Outlook 2003 on my work laptop. It works fine with my home wireless connection, it works fine in our offices, and it worked fine at my last client. Now, my new client requires us to use a VPN connection to use their network. Outlook worked for me for the last month or so, although I would have issues in the morning where it would take a long time (sometimes an hour plus) to complete the initial connection to my company's exchange server and actually become functional. Since Monday, nothing I do has been able to make Outlook connect over my client's VPN connection. It seems to complete the 'Send' portion of send/receive just fine, but hangs on 'Receive.'
Here's what I've done so far:
Messed with every setting I can find in outlook, with my wireless settings, etc. Some changes made things worse, but nothing improved my situation.
Tried tweaking registry MTU settings. Nada.
All of my co-workers can connect without issue; as far as any of us can tell all of my settings are identical to those found on functional machines.
If you have any suggestions as to how I might fix this, no matter how asinine they might seem, please post. My company's help desk won't assist because they believe it's a VPN problem; my client's helpdesk won't assist because VPN seems to be working fine (and I have full access to everything except email via outlook).
