My Windows 10 client wouldn’t connect to our Direct Access severs today, kept just getting Connecting
So to troubleshoot I’d recommend:
Checking your internet connection:
Now its worth running some PowerShell commands to get the actual error:
This likeley means your proxy is in the way of your connection.
Check the settings:
Double check your internet connection
I think its time to check the proxy settings:
Check if you can get to a website via IE and try via another browser such as Firefox.
If you cant then check if your proxy is off:
Now check the windows 10 proxy and the Netsh proxy:
Windows 10, turn it off:
Check the netsh and then turn it off or reset it to IE:
#Show the proxy settings:
netsh winhttp show proxy
#Reset it to default
netsh winhttp reset proxy
#Set to IE
netsh winhttp import proxy source=ie
When reset should look like this:
Failing that reset the IP Helper in services.msc or reboot:
The netsh settings fixed it for me, the reason I’d set it was to allow PowerShell out to the internet for Exchange 365 work.
