PPTP VPN does not work on Iphone Personal Hotspot


I've just updated to iOS 10 yesterday and now all my devices I use to connect to the personal hotspot on my iphone are not able to establish PPTP VPN connections. I was aware of the PPTP client are disabled in the iOS, but has actually blocked PPTP are not used by devices that connect to the Personal Hotspot?

Please help ASAP, I know there are many more end-users like me having the same problem.



Apple does not recommend using the PPTP protocol for secure and private communication.

iOS 10 and macOS Sierra intentionally delete a VPN profile PPTP connections when a user upgrades from their device.

Apple recommends using another VPN protocol which is safer:

    My new tablet, slate 7 more, c. 4.2.2 kernel v. 3.1.10 - g2630132 does not connect to my iPhone 4, ios 7.0.6.

    The Tablet works fine on wifi router database connections.

    The Tablet sees different iPhones when the personal hotspots are active on these phones and I can enter the security keys.  The Tablet shows "signal strength Excellent and"WPA2 PSK security."  However when I press "Connect" the Tablet shows the hotspot iPhone simply as 'Saved, secure with WPA2.'  The Tablet does not actually connect.

    My goal by purchasing this tablet had a portable device that I could work out my phone personal hotspot.

  • The jump button does not work on iPhone

    Skip to the next song button does not work on iPhone. When you press the jump key, instead of going to the next track or shuffle to the next song, he repeats / restarts the track that is currently playing. Even when the song ends, it starts all over. It's like all my songs are stuck on repeat. The only way to change a song is by manually choosing a different, or by manually typing the shuffle button. Everything worked great yesterday. I asked several of my friends to check my conclusions, and they have confirmed the same questions. If anyone knows how to fix this help please.

    Hello Gus87,

    I understand that your iPhone seems to be stuck playing the same song, regardless of your attempts to move to the next track. This may be due to the function "Repeat" enabled in the current reading on your iPhone screen.

    • Control playback. Tap a song to play and show the Miniplayer. Tap the Miniplayer to display the now playing screen, where you can do the following:

    Repeat steps. Press on to repeat an album or a playlist. Double click to repeat one piece.

  • After the upgrade yesterday from Vista to Windows 7, now my Cisco VPN does not work and I get an error message titled: grounds 440 driver fault. Any ideas to fix this?

    After the upgrade yesterday from Vista to Windows 7, now my Cisco VPN does not work and I get an error message titled: grounds 440 driver fault.  Any ideas to fix this?

    This was the solution!  The works of vpn as $ 1 million now.  I followed the instructions above to enter the uninstall program and selecting the repair option.  I rebooted the machine, then used the troubleshooting on vpn software compatibility option.  Selected Windows windows xp (service pack 2) as the correct software and cisco vpn client started right up.

    Thanks, Nick!


  • The toe does not work on iphones and ipads

    I created a site on Adobe Muse and the pinch to zoom feature does not work on iphone or iPad, but it does not work on androids. What I am doing wrong?

    Muse expects and allows you to design and build mobile layouts appropriate, so that your visitors will see a more appropriate site. In fact, Google is also to give these sites for a better position in their search results. Some tablet Android phones could not "reveal" or behave as a mobile device, so that they sort of get away with it...

  • Hey siri does not work on iPhone 6 + or 6?

    Discovered that Hey siri must have activated in 9.3.2

    My wife 5 old it was flash up on the screen.

    He turned on his own and it works very well

    It also works on my mini iPad 4

    It does not work on my iPhone 6 +.

    or my son iPhone 6

    or friends iPhone 6

    Siri itself works fine just not Hey siri.

    Ideas please

    Thank you


    «Hey Siri' works only with iPhone 6s and 6 sec more.» The rest of the iPhone can use "Hey Siri" when your iPhone is connected. But before that you should have implemented on settings > general > Siri > enable "Hey Siri.

    I hope I helped you!

  • Check sensor SFR with FireSight via VPN - does not work

    Hello security experts.

    I have an ASA5515-X with SFR installed 5.4.0 and manage with 5.4 FireSight installed on the virtual machine on LAN and I record the sensor without any problem but when I try to register the sensor to FireSight via VPN I can't do. The interface on the ASA management has no intellectual property nor nameif configured and the interface is connected to the switch, SFR has the IP even configured as LAN addressing. I can see traffic being exchanged between the sensor and the FireSight but I can't save the sensor.

    Has anyone managed to register the sensor via VPN? Is there something else to be configured in order to save the sensor with the MC via the VPN?

    The delay between the Firesight and the sensor (on WAN and VPN) I get between 80 and 100 ms, what could be the problem?

    Thank you very much!



    If you are unable to telnet from DC to the sensor on the port 8305 delivers connectivity then.

    Can try you to ping from sensor to DC:

    ping -M do -c 20 -s 1572 
    By default, the MTU is 1500 on eth0, if the ping does not work I will suggest to lower the MTU on the interface and see if it works. See also: / var/log/messages | grep sftunnel and see the error messages on DC and sensor and send it to me everywhere. Best regards, Aastha Bhardwaj rate if this is useful!
  • Cisco Anyconnect VPN does not work in windows 7 64 bit

    I found that the cisco anyconnect (version 3, any series) does not work in windows 7 (64-bit).
    The vpn is connected, but there is not any internet access.

    I tried to solve the problems of:

    -Disabling the firewall.

    -disable the anti-virus etc.

    But while I tried using with 32 bit, it works very well.

    Also, I found that there is not a specific version of anyconnect vpn for only 64-bit.

    Do any body have the idea how to solve this problem, either it's a bug of cisco vpn itself?

    Certainly, you just need to install a later version of AnyConnect.  You need a Cisco, for example a SmartNet maintenance contract, to download the new versions.

  • Cisco VPN does not work in the Sierra

    I just upgraded to OS Sierra and the Cisco VPN, I had the installer does connect more.  The Setup looks right into network preferences. When I click it looks like it is trying but stops without asking for a password.

    Cisco VPN client may need to update or re-installed. If she uses the PPTP Protocol, it will not work. Support for PPTP was ignored, because it is no longer considered as secure.

  • I use a VPN in AirPort Express. I've updated firmware for 7.7.7 and DNS assigned by my VPN does not work anymore. Upon entry, the icon 'internet' in utility Airpot turns brown, and the internet stops completely. Anyone have any idea?

    Why my internet connection dies? I use a VPN to my internet at home. I put the DNS numbers supplied by the company VPN in my airPort extreme, which, in turn, provides wireless for home. It worked perfectly until I updated to firmware 7.7.7. Suddenly the green light next to the 'internet' in airport Utility icon went Brown, and it is therefore most all internet. I put numbers in DNS to my ISP, and internet provider is displayed again. All the other numbers in DNS, whether it's Google, OpenDNS or VPN to stop the dead from the internet. Anyone has an idea about this?

    Airport base stations, are at best, a VPN-well past that device. It is a server or a VPN client. Upgrade to the latest firmware does not change this fact.

    To create a VPN tunnel using the AirPort Express Terminal, your computer must be running a VPN client that connects to a VPN server somewhere on the Internet. What DNS servers you use should make no difference with VPN.

    If the ISP-supplied DNS servers do not work, I would say that you contact your ISP to find out why they don't allow you to use them.

    What we need to study is more why you lose Internet connectivity when changing the DNS servers of your ISP. Please check with them and to report back, then we can try to help.

    Does anyone have an idea? Thanks in advance.


    Thanks for the update! Happy in his work.

    The commands below are for the search for group policy.

    AAA authorization groupauthor LAN

    card crypto isakmp authorization list groupauthor REMOTEACCESS

    Since then, you have configured Group Policy (name, presharedkey, etc.) locally on the router, you must specify the router where to look for the isakmp policy when VPN cace tries to connect.

    I hope it helps.

    Kind regards

  • New Acrobat DC does not work on iPhone 4 (7.1.2)

    Is there anywhere I can access/reinstall the app previous version, which worked on 7.1.2? Can't find it in iTunes or App Store, only the new version.

    Acrobat app auto update and now will not work. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you!


    Hi Jerry,

    Unfortunately, Apple (not Adobe) does provide some options to downgrade iOS nor any apps, iOS (from the App Store).

    For example, once that you upgrade your operating system on your iPad/iPhone to iOS to iOS 7 8, you cannot go back to iOS 7 (unless your iPad/iPhone is jailbroken).

    Similarly, the Apple App Store detects the iOS on your iPhone/iPad operating system and selects the latest compatible version of an application.  The App Store does not have the user interface (dialog or list) with several versions of the application for users (like you) to choose.

    If you have a full backup of your iPad/iPhone before installing the latest version of Acrobat Reader for iOS, you can restore it and disable the automatic update to app.

    Could you describe the problems you have experienced with the latest version of Acrobat Reader for iOS?  Be very specific.  We can try to fix it if we understand what you don't like about it.

    Thank you.
