We have a Windows Server 2012 R2 (Datacenter) running the Server Essentials Role. I've setup
Anywhere Access (setup DNS, obtained SSL cert for remote.domain.com, opened ports 80,443 on router). Setting up Anywhere Access on the server also established the VPN connections on client machines.
But when the clients (Windows 8.1) connect to the VPN connection, they disconnect immediately upon connection. The connection state cycles through the following steps in under 4 seconds.
- Connecting to remote.domain.com
- Verifying your credentials
- Completing connection (icon changes to success too)
- Disconnected (immediately)
The VPN type is "Automatic" but I know it's using SSTP (shows WAN Miniport (SSTP)) in non-metro view as the last used one.
Question: Does anyone know why the clients disconnect immediately upon successful "connected" ? Is there a log somewhere for details?
A screenshot on the client settings is below, all defaults BTW
