VPN Breaks after Windows Update version 1809 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.
    Due to windows update to version 1809, we have users who cannot use VPN service in split tunnel configuration. The VPN seems to break when the windows are updated to version 1809. The Workaround mentioned in this link ( is not possible for us due to security concerns.  (Workaround: manually configure the systems to force all traffic through the VPN tunnel)

    Could you help us understand how to fix this by "upgrading the block" ( and how MS can upgrade the block on our systems? or any other solution that can fix this? 

    Also, will there will be a Hotfix update from Microsoft releasing in near future to fix this problem?

    Thank you!

  • Yes, this is starting to get really annoying. Me and my collegues have big issues with Pulse Secure WSAM (Windows Secure Application Manager). 

    Usually I have to connect and disconnect several times before its working as expected and in worst case I have to reboot. Also when it does not work Outlook, Teams and MSTSC are affected too. Very weird.

  • I have finally a solution... you can use the latest Pulse Desktop Client, that also support WSAM functionality.

    We installed 

    PDC (PulseSecure.x64.msi) in Version 90r31

    and used the same URL as the login website - it just worked, we´re also using split tunnel.

    At another customer we have to use <url>/rsalogin

    But thats differs from setup-to-setup i guess

  • HI,  did you ever resolve this issue as we are now experiencing the same issues with Pulse WSAM since running the MS Windows 1809 update.

    We have over 70 users that have to reboot many times to get to the URL required.
