First, I was thinking that it was a connectivity error that I am receiving, but then I figured out that this is not a connectivity error, but it is due to firewall settings.
Well I have disabled Windows own firewall but I have installed a separate firewall, known as Seagate personal firewall.
Unable to contact the server. If a firewall is enabled it must be configured to allow outbound traffic on UDP port 10000..
I don’t know much about how to use it, but still I know how to block sites through it.
I think the error is appearing due to some conflict with this firewall of the VPN. If you know how to set the settings of this firewall, so that it may allow outbound traffic on UDP Port 10000, then please let me know and reply to this post.
VPN Client Connectivity With server Error
Try these steps.
On the main Console of the Seagate Personal Firewall, Click on the Tools menu ; then select Advanced Rules. An informational box should appear. Create a rule for the output you desire, say allow outbound traffic on UDP. Click add, to include this condition on the main list. The Advanced Rules dialog box appears on the General tab
On the General tab, type a descriptive name for your rule in the Rule description box. In the Action section below the Rule Description box, select what action the rule will under take, to either block or allow traffic.
Next select the network card, where this rule is to be applied. (This applies, if you have more than one Network card)and check the Record this traffic on ‘Packet Log’.
Click on the Ports and Protocol tabs. In the Apply rule to section, click to open the drop down menu on the protocol box and select UDP. You should see two port boxes – local and remote. Type the port number you want the rule to take affect and the type of traffic to be affected (whether inbound or outbound). Click ok.
Retry your connection.
