Latest Windows Update Could Fix your Broken VPN
Just as reported by BleepingComputer, the company, the company published three cumulative updates for the month, one for windows 11 (KB5014668), One for windows server 2022 (KB5014665), and one available for windows 10, 1809 (KB5014669).
Among the usual bug fixes and performance tweaks, these updates are also expected to address issues that were reported earlier this week concerning Wi-fi hotspots. As of last week, Microsoft talked about how an earlier patch broke the feature.
Windows Update Fix
When trying to make use of the Hotspot feature, the host device might lose the connection to the internet right after a client device connects,” Microsoft stated.
This fix came as great news to all those that the issue affected, but for the time being, only these three versions of the OS resolve the issue. Meanwhile, people making use of windows 10 aside from 1809, windows 8.1, or Windows 7 SP1 would be required to wait a bit longer (probably until the next patch Tuesday).
VPN Issues Fixed
On the 14 of June, Microsoft decided to release KB5014697, a cumulative update that addresses a number of known windows issues. However, the patch also introduces new flaws, namely issues with the sign-in process for Azure Active Directory, as well as Microsoft 365 on Arm devices (Besides the Wi-Fi hotspot issue).
As stated by the bleeping computer, Microsoft is yet to acknowledge VPN and RDP connection issues that are plaguing RRAS servers following the June windows server updates. What’s more is that people also have started reporting issues with LLTP/SSTP VPN clients, as well as RDP failing to connect.
Among the issues are the servers freezing for some minutes, after a client connects to the RRAS server with SSTP. The solution to the problem here is that, as the company told the publication, is to temporarily disable the NAT Feature on RRAS servers.
However, some of the admins are reporting that the latest raft of preview updates is here to solve these fix these VPN-related issues also. And this suggests a widespread fix for all windows operating systems that could be imminent.
