Hello,

I unable to connect to my home NAS VPN server using built-in L2TP/IPSec profile: It stays in "connecting" state for many seconds then switch back to "disconnected".

I thought it was an incompatibility between my NAS VPN stack and Android built-in client.

But yesterday I had the opportunity to make a test using a Samsung Galaxy S3 "Mini" (using same profile and settings) and it worked!

And today, I tried with two colleagues devices: a LG G3 and a Samsung Galaxy S4, both running same android version (4.4.2) as the Z, and using same mobile operator and mobile plan.

They are connecting fine too!

Would anyone have an explanation of what's happening here?

Something which could be interesting:

A member of another forum has been able to connect succesfully with an Xperia Z1 which was still using 4.3 firmware.

Just after that he has updated his phone to latest availlable firmware (4.4.4) and has been unable to connect then.

Since my last post, I've been able to perform new others tests on different devices.

My conclusion is that is a Sony specific issue since it fails on every "Z" model I've tried so far (including latest Z3) running Android 4.4.*

Contacted Sony support which did'nt even respond to my queries.

Solution found: replace phone with a model of another brand (scheduled to be delivered soon )
