Remote Access error 800 - Unable to establish the VPN connection / RRAS / Server 2008 R2 RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • RRAS is not allowing VPN Connections to be created

    I'm getting the following message

    "Remote Access error 800 - Unable to establish the VPN connection.  The VPN server may be unreachable, or security parameters may not be configured properly for this connection."

    I've checked the firewall and it seems to have the right ports unblocked as usual.    I've even tried turning the firewall off to no avail.

    Pinging the server works fine, as does RDP sessions.

    RRAS service status is running and appears to be working ok....

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Chris.

    Mentions using netstat -anob

     

    I did this and port 1723 doesn't show up at all

  • When opening the ports area in the Routing and Remote Access Window it comes up empty.

    If I go to Ports properties there's no devices listed

  • If I disable Remote Access Connection Manager the ports come back.  Unfortunately this is a required component of RRAS....

  • Hi Chris,

    Could you also try remove and reinstall RRAS ? you could backup settings with perform " Netsh Routing Dump" and "Netsh RAS Dump" first
