When virtual private network (VPN) clients try to remotely log on to your network, they may be denied access. Users may receive one of the following error messages:
Error 781: The encryption attempt failed because no valid certificate was found
Client computers on your internal network may be unaffected by this issue.
Error 628: The connection was closed
This issue may occur if your VPN server is located behind a Linksys BEFSR41 router.
To resolve this issue, update the firmware for your Linksys BEFSR41 router. For information about how to do this, contact Linksys, Inc.
