Unable to access remote desktop

Hi,

 

Similar to some others on this channel, as of yesterday I am not able to access several remote desktops using my Talk Talk internet. I am however able to access them on mobile wifi hotspot.

 

All of my smart plugs have also disconnected and are not controllable on mobile so I wonder if this might be connected.

 

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Hi @Skynet_TX ,

 

Thanks for getting back to me. Yes I have a Sagemcom Router and it is version SGK100130 and I'm using the Windows VPN client.

 

The smart plugs I think are a separate issue and seem to be working again.

 

Thanks

Hi cjwatkins21

 

I'm sorry to hear this.

 

Please can you update your Community Profile to include your name and TalkTalk landline number, we can then look into this further.

 

Thanks

Are these remote desktops in your home & you are trying to access them from the internet and they used to work? If so, has your router been allocated a new public (WAN) IP address? Alternatively in line with what @Skynet_TX has said about VPNs, are you trying to access remote desktops out on the internet from home?

 

One other thing linked to VPNs the latest Patch Tuesday update for Windows 10 & 11 has broken the internal Windows VPN client if you use that.

Hi @cjwatkins21,

 

What model of router do you have, is it the Sagemcom Wi-Fi Hub, if so go to http://192.168.1.1/ and see what 'version' it is showing towards the bottom of that login screen. If it shows SG4K100130 then that is a brand new firmware version that is known to have caused issues with VPN access for some users, especially users using the built in Windows VPN. What VPN / Remote Access software are you trying to use.

 

However I've not heard of any issues with this new firmware that would affect your smart plugs.

 

The staff here won't be around now until Monday, but they should be able to respond to this post early next week to help.

 

For one of the TalkTalk staff on this community to be able to look into this you will need to update your community profile to include your name, landline telephone number that your TalkTalk service is provided on & an alternative contact number. This will allow them to identify you, and they will then be able to help.

 

Don't post any personal details in this thread, just add them to your community profile (only you and the TalkTalk staff on this community can see your profile details).
