Troubleshooting / Testing Functionality

Testing Functionality

  • Method 1: If your VPN has the status "Connected" and you have working internet on your Gaming-PC your VPN is working correctly.
    finishedVPNConnected.png.4557dbbad74f553d21016fe59ebb94b0.png

     

  • Method 2: On the Radar-PC open your "Softether VPNServer Manager" and double click your profile
    finishedSoftetherServerSettingName.png.03d7eaef662f9c37c0407c0118fad833.png
    • While you are connected your Virtual Hub will show two Sessions instead of one!
      finishedSoftetherServerVirtualHubSessions.png.feb1fdbe5fdc919f1875ce0fcc3b6b91.png

 

Please try the troubleshooting steps if you can't connect to your VPN or you lose your internet connection when it says "Connected".
 

Troubleshooting

  • Connections Issues
    • Open Ports UDP 500 AND UDP 4500 in the firewall of your Radar-PC.
    • Make sure that Secure NAT is enabled.
    • Make sure that you entered the correct ip address in you vpn connection profile.
  • "the L2TP connection attempt failed because the security layer encountered a processing error"
    • You can try these fixes.

If these troubleshooting steps don't fix your connection issue we can help you in
a ticket on our discord server!
