Resolving WatchGuard connection problem on Win 8.1

A solution I found to a WatchGuard VPN connection problem:

  1. Uninstall WatchGuard
  2. Delete the folder C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\WatchGuard
  3. Reinstall WatchGuard

Works better than before now.


I had been using WatchGuard for a few months on Win 8 and then Win 8.1 successfully although the connection was often 'difficult'. But, for reasons unknown, it stopped working mid Feb 2014.

I was originally using  WatchGuard 11.6.0.

Now using WatchGuard 11.8.0. (Build 425534) on Windows 8.1.

Cyber Security

The Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) has done a great job publishing some real useful, and practical, guides on cyber security. Nice work.

I'm interested in:

The ASD's strategies documents are useful and helpful. Check out their top 4 strategies, they say that of the thousands of breaches they have investigated 85% would have been prevented by just these 4 strategies.
