I have seen a lot of VPN posts lately and I would like to share with you a set of videos I made regarding VPN configuration and troubleshooting. These videos go from the configuration of any VPN to the troubleshooting for any case.
All the scenarios I covered can help you to solve 99% percent of all the cases you might have regarding VPN with Meraki Support. It shows how to use the tools and the pcaps in order to understand where the problem is coming from.
I strongly recommend the one regarding AutoVPN. Since Meraki uses a proprietary configuration to create the AutoVPN tunnel, sometimes we just drop the towel and reach out to Support if the tunnel is not up. I covered how to identify every aspect of the AutoVPN traffic flow, differentiate the different problems, and how to fix it.
I hope these videos can help you to troubleshoot your VPN scenarios before raising a case.

Great videos! Very well done. I would highly encourage people to check out the other videos on this channel, @Joan_P has some really great content.
Wow, good effort!
I'm also going to give one of my tools a plug - the most advanced tool for building scripts to setup client VPN connections for Windows 10.
It can do complex things like split VPN, VPN exclusions, split DNS, and knows how to generate exclusions for full tunnel configs for common things like Cisco WebEx and Office 365.
@Joan_P I like the videos...really well done!
Would have helped me about 4 month ago, when I had problems with Client VPN.
Thanks for the great videos
Thanks for you videos @Joan_P I have an issue that I hope you can help me.
I've got a MX64 with 2 ISP. On WAN1 I have a static IP and on WAN2 I have another ISP wit dynamic IP.
The client VPN are setup with the DynDNS and there is no problem to connect EXCEPT when WAN 1 fails.
The clientes inside the MX have no problems to navigate, but all VPN clientes can't establish the tunnel, May you sugggest something to look at?
Thanks for you post,
Fortunately, there has not been more fails with my ISP 1, but the answer to your questions is Yes for all.
This is a very strange behaviour
Would you mind on sharing on how to created "a powershell script for your clients to just click and add the VPN to their machine". I have over 200+ users and this would make my job a lot simpler.
@dougProCast check out my post.
If you use Active Directory, then run the script via group policy instead.
