Windows 8 SSL VPN problem

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I was using Forticlient SSL VPN on my computer running Windows 8 but I can't establish a connection, the client tried to the number of bytes sent into a higher value, but still I've receive 0 bytes. Is there any other way configure this?

Windows 8 SSL VPN problem


Hello Susan,

Here is a workaround that will help you fix that issue:

  • Go to the administrator cmd shell and type: net stop bfe
  • You may also need access the Services and from there you will manually disable and stop the: Windows Firewall and the IKE and Auth IPSec Keying Modules.
  • That will cause the Base Filtering Engine to shut down.

This is one thing that you should just quickly test for it will leave your machine vulnerable to malicious programs.

You should also ensure that these services are running when you have finished the testing. Also check any other service that might have been stopped by the "net stop bfe" command and start it. The services may include the following:

  • Base Filtering Engine.
  • IPSec Policy Agent.
  • Windows Firewall.
  • IKE and Auth IPSec Keying Modules.

The possible causes of the problem that you are encountering are:

1. The user is not present in the correct user group that possess the VPN access.

2. The absence of a firewall policy that allows the user group to access internal networks. You need to have a policy in the WAN interface to the internal networks with SSL-VPN and select the group of users. Make sure the concerned user is in that group.

3. There might be a slight possibility that you are trying to connect VPN from wrong side of the interface.

I hope this information proves useful to you.
