Hi, a few our our users started having VPN issues recently, not sure why. We are now on Windows 10 Pro 1909 but I see no reports of there being compatibility issues with it, or with any recent Microsoft security updates...and it did work until recently.
Error code is 789.
I have tried majority of the fixes...setting up a new VPN connection with a new VPN name, ensuring PCAP is checked, ensuring services are started and set to automatic, adding the registry key and setting it to 2. I even tried disabling the Windows Firewall and Antivirus completely. I haven't checked any port forwarding or anything yet.
Odd thing is I am able to connect to VPN using my cell phone hotspot, just not my usual/regular Comcast ISP (other users have Optimum with the same issue).
I've run into a problem recently where some ISPs (mostly cable) have done something to their ISP-provided equipment, and it prevents the IPSEC tunnel from forming. Mediacom is my local culprit, and their only fix offered is "buy your own router w cable modem".
Same behavior you describe: Cellphone hotspot or other separate connection, VPN works. On the cable internet, VPN does not work, returns 789.
Have you reached out to your ISP and asked pointed questions?
Don't you love ISPs
and by love, I mean the exact opposite of love.
I'm so glad you found that setting. Like I think I said... my clients have just gone and bought their own equip, because they'd lost faith in their ISPs's gear at that point. In this day and age, how is blocking IPSEC a "security feature"? Honestly.
BTW, if you're in Windows, you should always leave IPv6 enabled. This is especially true on Windows Servers. IPv6 support won't impact your IPv4 connections, and it's necessary for certain services to function correctly.
