Shrewsoft VPN negotiation errors RRS feed

  • Question

  • Having problems using the Shrewsoft VPN with Windows 10. It worked just fine with 8.1 and curious if anyone has any tips.

    I've uninstalled and cleaned the registry of the original install and reinstalled with no luck.  Here's what the VPN connections status says.  I've tried searching for answers, tried a couple regarding uninstalling the shrewsoft filter in the network connections and reinstalling etc, but still no love.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • Hi Mjrtoo,

    Thanks for asking in TechNet.

    I am not sure how this VPN works here, but from the message, it seems to be the connection to the server side failed.

    Please verify the connection information, Server IP address, login credentials and other settings;

    Meanwhile, consider ask at the software vendor side, and if possible, take a try with the other software to check.
