    There are several events of this type, if you will post the full details of
    the event it will help diagnose the issue.

    Before I suggest you something about the same I just wanted to know the below things:

    • Are you getting any error message as you have mentioned that you are not able to print to some of the networked printer?

    • Are you getting any error message when you are stopped from viewing the site that is hosted on remote server? Are you having any issues in doing PING/access resources on the VPN server?

    • As you are not able to surf as well as establish new VPN connection, I wanted to know that what is the destination for establishing a RDP session in your case??

    Just answer me the requested questions so that I can have a better idea of the issue that you are facing and will try to help you out with the same.
