RDP connection to VPS drops when connecting to VPN

Post by Gerard1 » Mon Sep 07, 2020 5:10 pm

Guys, i have virtual server Windows 2012. I need connect from RDP machine to VPN. The connection succeeds, but since the VPS gets a new IP, the existing RDP connection is dropped.
Only reboot rdp machine help me.
VPN server is SE VPN Ubuntu 16.04.


How can i connect to VPN without lost rdp connection?

Split Tunnel is probably the solution. I don't think it's the addition of an IP Address that's dropping the tunnel but rather the change of default gateway. I could be wrong, but I suspect the gateway change messes it all up. So, select the option in the SoftEther client's connection properties to not update routing table. It's in the Advanced area.
