Reason 442: failed to enable virtual adapter


I have faced a problem when connecting to a VPN connection using Cisco VPN client, the authentication window pop ups and after i enter the credntials with a couple of miuntes i get the following message:
Reason 442: failed to enable virtual adapter

The strange thing that it was working before, but something must changed, then i remembered that i have installed a virtual WiFi router, then i figured it out , that program enabled Internet Connection Sharing.

for the VPN connections to work you have to stop the Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) Service, change the startup mode to either manual or disabled.

then try to reconnect and your VPN connection should work fine :)
