Hello,
I am facing problems with the Nortel VPN client 10.04.016. It says "Activating VPN adapter failed".

Help me in this regard. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

even though this question is probably too old to remain as an issue, I am pretty sure some people facing the same issue end up here.

I had the same problem with my Nortel VPN client. Upgrading to 10.04.109 did not solve the issue.
Checking the services (right click on my computer-manage-services and applications-services) I have realized that the service for "IKE and AuthIP IPsec Keying" was not started and could not be started, because the service "Base Filtering Engine" was missing completely.

I have therefore exported both the BFE Keys and the IKEEXT from the registry of another computer, and imported them to the registry on mine.

Finally I had to add a new user under permissions for the BFE key in the registry. The user name is NT/BFE and it should have full access rights.

This has solved my issue and my VPN is fully functional again!!

Hope this helps

I was not able to start my services and I couldn't add permissions for the BFE key. Can you please provide more guidance on adding permission/user? I would appreciate it.
