Have you always had the errors?
What changes to the Firewalls or End User setups have been made? Or did the issue(s) come about spontaneously?
Have you tried a different VPN client? Sounds like the issue is with the VPN client or user permissions. Do you have a screen shot of any errors or logs?

When dealing with Watchguard, you can tell them your hours or have them contact you via email.

Which Watchguard are you using (XTM 2, 3, 5, older model) and what is the firmware version.  There are known issues with the older firmware and the SSL VPN.

Try updating the firmware and the SSL Client to the latest version.

Not so much the answer you are looking for but I had a similar issue and I pressed and pressed finally threatened to return the device and eat the cost of the security license. After that I received a "unreleased version of the newest fireware." I had to log in to an FTP server and download it. It must have worked because since then we have been good.

Suggestion to you: See if there are any other fireware versions you can get aside from what is available on the downloads page in their support page.
