VPN server does not work after sleep or hibernation


  • Hello!

    After I updated Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 system stops processing incoming connections (PPTP,L2TP) after sleep or hibernation.

    Process System (PID 4) does not open port 1723. Does not work PPTP, or L2TP. No records in logs are present. Restart the service "Routing and Remote Access" does not solve the problem. Reinstallation of system doesn't solve a problem. The problem disappears after reboot.

    The only way to avoid the bug - stop the service "Routing and Remote Access" before going into sleep mode or hibernation and then start it after waking up the system.

    There is a suspicion that this is a bug in the system kernel. What could be the problem and where to start searching for a solution?

  • I am having the same issue.  The only difference is I upgraded from Server 2012 Standard (Windows 8) to Server 2012 R2 Standard (Windows 8.1).  I also believe it is an OS bug.  I am out of ideas.

  • I have the same problem in Windows 10 Pro. Come on, Microsoft, it's 2018. Is 5 years not enough to fix this issue?
