A week into my #WINDOWS10 Experience and I’m definitely more than pleased with the whole thing. Thumbs up Windows chaps and chapettes πŸ™‚

I just discovered a cure for my only other little VPN niggle.

Last week I had a problem getting Cisco AnycConnect to work, but a little registry tweak seemed to fix that problem. This week I had a similar problem installing another VPN client, in this case the older legacy CISCO VPN Client. So, just to be awkward I am running three VPN clients on my laptop and I am happy to report that all three are running happily together while I type this blog:

  1. Shrewsoft VPN
  2. Cisco AnnyConnect
  3. Cisco VPN (the older unsupported *legacy* version

Problem with the older CISCO VPN

Error 27850 Unable to Manage Networking Component – Cisco VPN

Initially, i had a problem with the CISCO VPN LEGACY installation giving me this error:

Error 27850 Unable to Manage Networking Component - Cisco VPN

i tried everything; installing, un-installing, Registry changes, rebooting a squillion times and then a I stumbled across a comment in some forum somewhere (I’ve lost the link to it) which reommneded downloading and installing the 64bit DNE UPDATE by Citrix.

Download — Install — Reboot — KAZAM!

Worked perfect… and now everything works in perfect harmony.

It makes me wonder if this DNE update is all that is needed to fix all the VPN problems for 64Bit WIN8.1 and Win10 Users?

DNE extends operating systems and network protocol devices and stacks to introduce measurement and controls. Our customers use these extensions to build products that do things like intrusion detection, VPNs, Network Address Translation (NAT), traffic measurement, response time measurement, bandwidth control, compression, content filtering, content protection, policy management, proxies, billing, packet marking, routing, protocol translation, wireless communication, secure tunnels and much more.

I’ve attached both the DNEUPDATE and the VPN CLIENT to this blog (or get it yourself from http://www.citrix.com/go/lp/dne.html)

Hope it helps someone out there….
