I cannot access my work computer through VPN

Hello,

 

My VPN connection to work has stopped working and I am getting an error message which says “The VPN connection between your computer and the VPN server could not be completed, ... If the problem persists, contact your network administrator or Internet Service Provider.”

The VPN software that I am using is the built in Windows 10 and it has stopped working since Wednesday 19 January. I have noticed that a number of users seem to be having a similar problem from the mid-January.

The router which I have is TalkTalk Wi-Fi Hub with firmware version SG4K100130 with no problem for more than a year. The problem is the router which I think an update/firmware was done on Tuesday 18th January. I am able to connect to work computer using my mobile hotspot.

 

I have had chat with talktalk a few times but got nowhere. They couldn't assess where the problem is. I am still not able to connect to the office computer using this router. Please could you help me to find a solution.

 

Many thanks

 

Ahmad

Hi, I seem to be having the same problem.  Have used the same connection since March 2020 without any problems & now cant connect,  Spoke to a colleague at work who had similar issues & a Debbie from Talk Talk Support Team sent him out a new TalkTalk router huawei Black.  My colleagues user name is talktalk2022 & his PC displayed the same message. "The VPN connection between your computer and the VPN server could not be completed.  The most common cause for this failure is that at least one internet device (for example, a firewall or router) between your computer & the VPN server is not configured to allow generic routing.  Encapsulation (GRE) protocol packets.  If the problem persists contact your network administrator or internet service provider.
