Remote Access Troubleshooting

The purpose of this document is to assist the user community with the diagnosis and resolution of
common errors that may be experienced when using Trinity remote access.

This document
should be consulted prior to contacting the Resolution Center.




1.

Before Proceeding

This document has been created with the current remote access user in mind. Because of this,
the following requirements must be met prior to proceeding:



The
user must have been granted remote access privileges.



The user must have a SecurID token.



A PIN number must have been created.



The modem must have been correctly installed and configured for use.


2.

Basic Troubleshooting

Since some dialin errors may have sim
ple causes, the following steps should be completed prior
to contacting the Resolution Center for support:


1.

Check to make sure you are not already connected.



If you are connected via dialup, you should see an icon that looks like two connected
computers in

the system tray.



If you are connected via VPN, you should see an envelope and key icon in the
system tray, which will blink when sending or receiving any data to the Trinity
network.

2.

Check to be sure that the telephone line is connected to your modem.

3.

If
you are using an external modem, make sure it is connected and powered on.

4.

Verify that you are using the correct modem and modem driver in Windows.

5.

Verify that you are using the correct telephone numbers by referring to the Trinity Remote
Access website co
ntacting or contacting the Resolution Center.

6.

If you don’t hear dial tone when you try to connect to the Trinity network, try adjusting
your speaker volume settings, and try again. If that does not work, try dialing the
telephone number from a different te
lephone to see if you hear a modem answer.

7.

Reboot your workstation and try again



3.

VPN Access Problems

Can I install V
PN with AOL?

America Online uses several proprietary networking components that differ from the industry
standard. Many AOL users report have reported severe problems (including having to reinstall
their operating system) after installing this and other c
ommunication software. Although some
America Online users have had success with the VPN client, we strongly recommend against
installation on a computer running AOL, and cannot support such installations.


I’m having problems with my VPN connection

In som
e cases, VPN connectivity may not be allowed by your cable or DSL provider, which differs
significantly from a provider not supporting VPN connectivity. Non
-
allowed VPN connectivity may
be the root cause of a VPN connection not working, even though the Sec
uRemote client can be
installed and the certificate updated. The only other means of Trinity remote access in these
cases are to use a dialup connection.


Trinity cannot assist with support of cable or DSL modems or the configuration of home networks
to pr
ovide VPN connectivity. However, the following sources are highly recommended:
