    VPN Connection - Cannot open Networking Properties IPv4


    We use a lot of VPN PPTP Connections. On most we turn off "Use default gateway on remote network". See the image below that shows where this setting is turned off.

    We cannot open the properties for Internet Protocol Version 4 on VPN connections under Windows 10. This is located at Network Connections and Properties of a VPN Connection. Networking Tab, then select Internet Protocol Version 4 and click Properties. But under Win 10 the properties dialog does not open.

    This has been tested on several Windows 10 systems and we have enabled Administrator and tested under that login as well.

    I'm having the same issue, have you found a solution yet?

    Edit: Found a post that explains how to set the 'use default gateway' setting. SOLUTION | Windows 10 VPN Network Settings Bug

    Still can't open the properties, but by using this Powershell command you can set the default gateway setting:

    Code:
    Set-VpnConnection -Name "VPN-NETWORK-NAME-HERE" -SplitTunneling $True

    This hasn't worked for me.

    an error came up saying that it doesn't recognise that script.

    Any suggestions?

    Hello,

    To use the power shell:

    If you've never used Power Shell, it's pretty easy. In Win10, go to "Start" then find the folder for "Windows Power Shell" click the > to open the folder in the menu, and select the program "Windows Power Shell" by right-clicking on it and selecting "run as administrator."

    Thank you for your responce.

    I can access the Power Shell, however, that last bit of code doesn't work. it says

    "set-vpnconnection : The configuration cannot be applied to the local user VPN connection -. : The system could not
    find the phone book entry for this connection.
    At line:1 char:1
    + set-vpnconnection - "Quest VPN" -splittunneling $True
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (-:root/Microsoft/...S_VpnConnection) [Set-VpnConnection], CimException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : VPN 623,Set-VpnConnection"

    after so from here I am unsure on what to do?

    Typo in your command line there. You need the word "Name" following the hyphen.
    Set-Vpnconnection -Name "Quest VPN" -SplitTunneling $true
    In your post /error message you're missing the "Name".

    The same bug just came back! Yesterday, after I reboot my computer, Windows 10 installed some patches, after that, I cannot open the IPv4 properties again (It affects all VPN connections, but not local network connections). I double checked that my Windows 10 is the latest version.

    Worse, the Powershell script is also buggy. I ran into the same error message as reported by other users:
    "set-vpnconnection : The configuration cannot be applied to the local user VPN connection -. : The system could not
    find the phone book entry for this connection.
    At line:1 char:1
    + set-vpnconnection - "Quest VPN" -splittunneling $True

    After 2 days of struggling, I finally found out that the above script can only work with a VPN connection that does NOT "Allow other people to use this connection". I deleted my VPN connections that "Allow other people to use this connection", then re-created them with this option unchecked. Finally, the above script worked.
