I have been running SonicWALL Global VPN v4.7.3.0403 on Windows 8 without trouble for more than a year. Today I upgraded to Windows 8.1 RTM and noticed that it disabled my Global VPN connection. I tried to repair the situation by uninstalling and reinstalling Global VPN, but that suddenly caused my computer to lose all network connectivity whatsoever. I uninstalled Global VPN again and connectivity was restored. At this point it appears that Global VPN v4.7.3.0403 is incompatible with Windows 8.1. Has anyone figured out a way to make it work?
Here are some links to others who appear to be having the same problem:
