JSI Tip 6794. Internet Explorer may fail to start your VPN connection?

Even though you have configured Internet Explorer to automatically prompt you to start your Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection, you receive:

Unable to Establish Connection when you press Connect.

Internet Explorer may not initialize a Dial-Up Networking (DUN) connection before it tries to initialize the VPN connection.

To workaound this behavior, start a VPN session before you start Internet Explorer.
