Client shows address but Tap adapter does not get it

Post by buchbria » Thu Sep 21, 2023 4:01 pm

I have a single windows computer that connects to the VPN and the desktop client shows a correct address. However when I try to ping or connect to anything on the VPN network it fails.

An ipconfig/all reveals that the Tap adapter does not get a valid address. It shows a 169 address.

I have removed and re-installed the software and still nothing works.

I have about 50 other people using the client without any issues.

Hi buchbria,

Would you be able to check if netsh.exe is also crashing when the TAP adapter is receiving the 169.254.... APIPA address?
Also what version of Windows are you on?

Regards,
Joseph.
