i upgrade my MR13 o MR14 and now the Sophos VPN Client fails to connect.
This worked from MR12 to MR13 and after MR14 it fails.No login possible.
i download the new Client from userportal after MR14 upgrade, but still no connection available.
Log Viewer is no option, this Log Viewer is only spinning a wheel forever..

It's ridiculous that WE as a customer should do all the work for support.As you can see, the problem is widespread and the solution "to connect from another PC" borders on mockery. How are…
Thank you for reaching out to the Community!
Are you able to see the traffic from your public IP address on port 8443 on the firewall?
Check out the following KBA: Sophos XG Firewall: How to monitor traffic using packet capture utility in the GUI.
Is this issue affecting all the users or only specific users? Have you restarted your workstation after reinstalling the client and config?

i had my Home Office VPN Client connected to the XG 17.5 MR12 and was connected to my office desktop.From Office Desktop i upgraded to MR13, it took some time until the upgrade was done and the VPN Client connected againg to MR13.
Next Step was to upgrade to MR14, after 20minutes still no VPN.
MR14 is up and running for most of the rules (i hope).
I did a capture today and Diagnostics with BPF 'dst port 8443' gives two captured packets.
First packet says ... Source IP, Dest IP, Packet, Ports, and ...
Status: ViolationReason: Local_ACL
I use VPN on external E1 (WAN).And i had disabled (Apply) enable (Apply) Local Service ACL in Admin/Device Access -> WAN / SSl VPN
Its not confidence inspiring that a simple Update from Release 1 to Release 2 works for the simplest things in a firewall.
What else can be wrong in a upgrade ...
I think from a post I saw in a similar thread there is or will be an mr-14-1 issued to fix this.
You might like to check mysophos to see if it has been released?
Are they nuts?
I will check, but what form of product management is this.
Thank you for the follow-up.
Would it be possible for you to send me the Access ID of your XG via PM (Monitor & Analize >> Diagnostics >> Support Access >> ON >> Access Status >> And copy & paste the Access ID and send it to me.), so I can check your ACL rules and the pertinent logs.
Sounds like an ACL might be causing this, this way I can also bring to the attention of Development.
i have a open critical ticket for 12 hours now.
Guess what, no one has been reviewing this ticket with the given urgency.Only one guy asked if the Problem is still alive today.
He even did NOT ask for an Access ID at all [:@]
this is frustrating, no one in Germany is answering the phone.
No Sophos member in Germany is answering mails, some i had spoken for the past few month are no longer employed.Even Sales members have left Sophos Germany this year...
There is a ticket open [#10052047] , Maybe you can take ownership.
As i said, all was fine with MR12 and MR13.
I have reached out to a Manager and he will be arranging a callback today to work on this case.
i send you a PM.
If it´s possible they can request an Access ID and token.Or i can update the Case through sophserv and provide A-ID ...
They can work on this Problem without me.I think they Need to make some test and should verify the MR14 release.
Thank you for the PM. I have replied.
I will update the ticket with this info.
I have exact the same problem, and the offical support doesn't help me further.
So what's the resolution to get SSL VPN back running with MR14-1?
Support just restarted the VPN Service from CLI.But i think a reboot would have done the same.
But you are on 14-1, i tried to upgrade yesterday from MR14 - MR14-1.
This was a desaster, the firewall rebooted and wasn´t seen anymore.The Firmware upgrade didn´t upgrade the network settings, all NIC settings where at factory defaults.
Please verifiy you NIC settings first, maybe you don´t reach VPN because all is at factory settings.
I reverted to MR14
I tried a restart, but it didn't helped.
I analyzed the OpenVPN log and it seems that it has something to do with the personal certificates.
As Sophos messed the wohle certificate thing when the Comodo / Sectigo Root expired, I think they have changed something on the certificate validation method in MR-14/MR-14-1.
I need to investigate this further.
Hi All,Any update on this? We have the same issue when I did an upgrade to MR14-1, users cannot connect to ssl vpn.
