Not sure why there is a red X mark on the Open VPN network adapter(TAP-Windows Adapter V9)
Posted on 2015-02-11
We use a hosted finance system outside to our network. The guys who host had asked me to open port 1194 on the fire wall. The firewall team had opened this port for us. The hosted system connects through the open Open VPN, The open VPN is set to start automatically .
They had given us few IP address 10.x.x.x range and told that I must be able to ping these IP addresses from our network.
When I ping I get destination net unreachable.
When I install the open VPN on my Laptop at home with all certificates and credentials it successfully pings these IP addresses 10.x.x.x
One thing I noted was, when I went to the network properties in my office.
I can see the Local area connection2 (TAP-Windows Adapter V9)and there is red X mark and it says Network cable unplugged.
I restarted the open VPN services several times,
I disabled IPV6 and did a repair on the adapter still I am not able to ping the IP addresses that was provided by the hosted guys.
Not sure why there is a red X mark on the adapter and how to ping this Ip addresses.
Any help much appreciated.
