Dear Sir,

I install the SSL VPN client on WinXP.

But it got error on adapter, and can not connect to XG.

In the SSLVPN client, it got the following error message.

Does XG SSL VPN support WinXP?
Where to download the correct driver for WinXP?

The driver works well on Win10.

  • HI ShunzeLee , 

    If you have issue with the Sophos SSL VPN on Windows XP, then we would need you to try to reinstall the SSL Client again .  We have reports for issue with XP with SSL VPN and would suggest you to use Open VPN instead . Just recently for XP , OPEN VPN did have a Bug issue as the architecture for the windows Vista/7/8/8.1/10 is quite different to XP. 

    You may download the Version for XP from the site linked and load the Configuration file onto the OPEN VPN client .  
    Note : As Windows XP is considered End of life we would not provide support . Hence this work-around would be applicable by using OPEN VPN .

    Hope this would resolve your issue also I have noticed the VM adapter was created . It could be possible that the VM may have occupied all the sockets the OS would handle.  I shall conduct the test on Windows XP SP3 and check if it work out with our SSL VPN Client . 

    Thanks and Regards

    Yes, I have test OPEN VPN already,

    and it works well.

    XP is really different with other Windows system...

    HI ShunzeLee 

    In order to use SSL VPN on Windows XP , We would recommend you  to use OPEN VPN For Windows XP . Since it an Old operating system  the compatibility would be an issue which is running in the Newer versions. 

    Thanks and Regards
