Problem connecting to Azure P2S VPN (Error 720)


When setting up a P2S connection to Azure using the Windows VPN client you receive Error 720: A connection to the remote computer could not be established.  You might need to change the network settings for this connection.


On your workstation:

  • Open Device Manager
  • Go to Network adapters
  • Right-click the WAN Miniport [protocol] and select Properties
  • Select Uninstall device

  • Repeat the above for each WAN Miniport driver installed
  • Reboot your PC
  • Re-open Device Manager
  • Right-click Network adapters and select Scan for hardware changes

Retry your Azure VPN connection. This time is should connect successfully.
