WSE connector conf wiz not working from WAN. Possible VPN issue? Is ipv6 essential for Windows Server 2016 with Essentials Experience Role? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Problem:

    I also notice that the Routing and Remote service in the server stops when I do this (see picture above).

    I've tried this on both a win10 (1803+all updates) client in one wan location, and also on a hyper-v guest win10 1703.

    The WSE Connector Configuration Wizard works fine on the same network as the server.

    It's a new server setup, it's live,  everything is working locally, local users are happy, and the anywhere access setup/repair works fine, certificate installed, no errors, port 80 and 443 forwarded. Remote Web Access works.

    It's some VPN issue maybe?

    Also, users can't connect from outside with the VPN created by the WSE Connector Configuration Wizard.

    Windows server 2016 with Essentials Experience role installed. All available updates from Microsoft installed.
    It's also has the dhcp role

    I'm running the server as a Hyper-V guest, using generation2 hardware (pain when it comes to backup, not usb drives accessable from the host, but that's another story)

    I'm guessing this has something to do with me disabling ipv6? (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/929852/guidance-for-configuring-ipv6-in-windows-for-advanced-users)

    The server has only one Ethernet adapter and it's on a static IP.

    I noticed that the dns server has no reverse zone, I thought that was maybe needed, should I create a reverse zone?

    Ps, @Eve Wang - I don't have much room for trial and error because I put the server into business last weekend without testing this. So I can't really try this and that, I have to research this from the bottom up and find the solution from viewing settings and logs.

    I enabled ipv6 again, and everything worked.

    I can now go anywhere in the world, browse to https://remoteblabla.myblabladomain.is/connect and download and use the client configuration wizard. No need for additional adjustments of vpn settings. @Mariette Knap Your statement "Out of the box VPN on a Windows 10 workstation to your Windows Server 2016 Essentials does not work." on the website https://www.server-essentials.com/support/articleid/137 is true if you are adding the VPN connection manually. But the VPN connection that the essentials client connector creates, works out of the box.

    Lesson learned: Do not disable IPV6.

  • Did you install May 8, 2018—KB4103721 (OS Build 17134.48) - Windows Help. You should not disable IPv6 and pls read Troubleshooting VPN connections on a Windows 10 Pro to Windows Server 2016 Essentials Anywhere Access

    Hi Mariëtte and thank you for replying.

    yes I have the KB4103721. As I said, all updates installed on the server.
    Regarding the "Troubleshooting VPN connections" link you sent. I have other installations of Windows Server 2016 with essentials experience role & dhcp server role, and the VPN worked there without this modification of the clients described in the link you sent. The client configuration wizard needs to create a VPN connection to work and it has worked in other locations. The defference in other locations is I didn't disable ipv6 there and I have reverse zones in dns there also.
