SYMPTOMS

After you disconnect from a virtual private network (VPN) connection that was created by using Connection Manager, you cannot connect again if you are not a member of the local Administrators group. This behavior affects connections that dial the Internet and then create a VPN connection. In the Network Connections window, the icon shows that the connection is in the Disconnecting state.

CAUSE

If you are not a member of the local Administrators group, you do not have the correct permissions to enumerate the status of network connections.
