get connected but then error messages

Post by Don-Santo » Mon Jul 20, 2020 2:38 pm

Hi guys!
Former we had a Huawei Router at the remote company where we want connect to. For connecting we use HTTPS (also called HTTP over TLS, HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) over SSL = TLS.
Now a Fritz Box 6890 has been installed instead. The producer of the Fritz! Router wrote: “Unfortunately, we have to inform you that the FRITZ! Boxes can only use IP-Sec (IKE v1) and VPN-TLS connections are not supported.”
Does it mean we cannot use the SoftEther VPN client/server for connecting with TLS?
When we start the SoftEther client we get the informtion “Connected”. Then we start Windows “Remote desktop” and after that we get those message with(white cross on red ground):
1) Remote access on the server is not activated.
2) The remote computer is switched off.
3) The remote computer is not available on the network.

This is unbelivabel, because the Remot computer works and the remote access is activated!!
best regards Andi

Does the Softether client computer display a pop up window that shows it received an IP Address? If not you need to create a "local Bridge" between the Virtual and the local network. This is done in the SE server manager.

Now problem ist solved. The Fritz Box can connect through all TLS-VPN requests. There was a need to open port 443 at the Fritz box 6890 router under the network items. Now it works. SofEther VPN solution works great!!
