Error Code 2 when trying to connect to a server

Post by Toberu » Fri Mar 23, 2018 9:54 pm

Hi everyone!

I saw a couple threads about this Error Code #2 I've been getting, but nothing I could really make sense of to be honest.

I'm using a Windows 10 PC right now, running the latest version of SoftEther. Up until now I've been using SoftEther on a laptop connected to the same network, and that machine had no problem connecting to any server. So I'm not really sure what the problem is.

Anyone have any idea what's wrong?

Thank you.

[EDIT] I forgot to mention: I was using AVG Antivirus, but turned that off and replaced it with the W10 built-in antivirus software, to no avail. Likewise, I use the built-in firewall.

Update: I tried creating a inbound rule to open port 443 over TCP, didn't work.

However, connecting to a server through UDP did the trick, but it says it's not a recommended option. May I know why?

Still, if anyone has any idea how to fix the problem and allow me to connect via TCP that would be ideal. Thanks!

Is it a server you are hosting, and is the server located on your LAN?

Not sure what you are asking, just trying to connect to one of the existing VPN Gate Public VPN Relay Servers. Does that answer your question?

I guess you connect to the VPN server in environment of limited in port 443.

am having the same problem: when trying to connect through TCP, it give me " Connection to the server failed. Check network connection and make sure that address and port number of destination server are correct." ... just to mention that this happen to most VPN servers on the VPN Gate public VPN relay servers list, very few site works fine, but the rest does not... Any help would be appreciated? thnx

Does UDP work for the site?
