Causes of VPN Connection Error 789

If you are ever prompted with L2TP Error 789, it might be due to the fact that your system is not perfectly set up to get connected to an L2TP server. The connection attempt fails even before a connection is established with the server. VPN Error 789 is linked with incorrect configuration of user’s operating system.

How to Fix VPN Connection Error 789:

  •     Check the status, right click to restart if it states started
  •     If the started option is disabled, enable it
