I got a P2S VPN setup and using a OpenVPN(SSL) tunnel type.

My SKU is VPNGW1.

I got this error " a connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly

responded after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected

host has failed to respond." right after verifying from the authenticator. I have not seen this error to the other machines though.

May I know your insights on this issue. TIA!

    @Alexander S ,

    Welcome to the Microsoft Q&A Platform. Thank you for reaching out & I hope you are doing well.

    I take it that you are using OpenVPN with Entra Authentication.

    • May I ask where exactly did you see this error?
    • Are you using Azure VPN Client and seeing this error in the "Failure reason"
      • If so, can you please share a screenshot of the issue?
    • If you sign in with a different account, does the error persist?
    • If you use the same account in a different device, does the error persist?

    Cheers,

    Kapil
