SoftEther VPN Error Code 1

Post by Serenityvelvet » Sun Mar 17, 2019 3:25 am

Hi all,

I'm trying to set up a SoftEther VPN server and a client for a school project.
I'm using VirtualBox Windows 7 environment for the server and a windows 10 machine for the client.
I'm using 2 different iphones hotspot to assign the IP address for my server and client.

Despite following the tutorial:, I'm unable to connect to the VPN server

I keep getting the following error:
Error (Error Code 1)
Connection to the server failed. Check network connection and make sure that address and port number of destination server are correct.

Another question i have pertaining to the setup is:
For the server hostname in the server manager, should it be my Server's 7 private or public IP address?
Likewise for the client hostname in the client manager, should it be my server's private or public address?

Apprciate any kind assistance.

Thank you.
