Hi, In the last week I have been getting this message while trying to connect to works VPN "a connection to the remote computer could not be established so the port was closed" 

It has been working fine for over a year, I've just had a new router today from Talktalk and still the same problem. Can you please help?

Hi celticfcbloke

 

Thank you. I will need to make a change to your firmware, would it be ok to do this this morning?

 

We advise to leave the router switched on without being rebooted whilst we update the FW, this should take no longer than 15 minutes to update.

 

Thanks

Hi celticfcbloke

 

I'm sorry to hear this.

 

Please can you update your Community Profile to include your name and TalkTalk landline number, I can then take a look at this for you.

 

Thanks

Hi @celticfcbloke,

 

If you have the Sagemcom Wi-Fi Hub then this will probably have been caused by the firmware upgrading to a new version.

 

What VPN software do you use, or is it the built in Windows 10/11 VPN ?

 

The support team here will be able to help, if you do have the Sagemcom they will probably be able to fix it by changing some router settings, they will hopefully be able to reply tomorrow.

 

For one of the TalkTalk Support Team 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 Support Team on this community can see your profile details).
