Client only works first connection of the day, everything connect after only connects no traffic.

Client only works first connection of the day, everything connect after only connects no traffic.

I currently use pulse secure 9.0.2 to connect to a Juniper SRX located at an office.  There is nothing wrong with the config on the router. 

 

The first connection always works, i can access the resources behind the VPN, and remote into other areas from within the network.

 

Every connection after that connects and i get my usual IP address. But there is no traffic.  I cannot access anything within the network i was literally just connected to through the client.  Only bytes in and out are my attempts to ping different points in the network.  Always receive a time out.

 

If i uninstall and re-install the pulse secure, it works just fine for the first connection only.  Cycle repeats.

 

I tried the repair app and it rebooted my computer. Once rebooted, i can connect and access resources. I disconnect and try again, completely exit client and try to reconnect. Once again i cannot access anything.

 

Are there any fixes, workarounds for this?  I cannot pass this on to remote workers in the state this software is in.  anyone else run into this?

I also tried just restarting my computer.  That also works, it allows the first connection. Now, the second connect allows me to access resources, really weird (its the first time it has done that in 2 weeks).  I am going to check if maybe the adapter hangs after the disconnect.

 

caveat, my session duration is awlays 17794 days and change with time remaining at 0 seconds.

3rd disconnect/reconnect try resulted in no access to resources.  I also disabled the Juniper adapter and re-enabled it with no joy.  Restarting computer.  It looks like to have the remote workers just never disconnect. I was just hoping to not have to buy more VPN licenses, ugh.
