Mobile VPN with SSL - Does not allow reconnectiong

Hi guys,

I am having trouble connecting from Watchguard Firebox T35 using VPN version 12.7.0 when on ehernet or wi-fi. It is working only when I am on mobile hotspot connection.
It is showing this log:

    Hi @Lowrinsky
    If this is just happening on your mobile router, try logging into that device and see if there's any option to allow VPN pass-thru.

    The logs you posted are just saying that the connection is resetting, which could be coming from anything upstream from you (including your hotspot.)

    I've gone through your post, and removed any reference to the IP you were connecting to. In the future, please ensure that your logs are sanitized if you post them here.

    additionally, if you're trying to connect from behind your WatchGuard firewall, the "WatchGuard SSLVPN" rule will need to be set to allow from any-trusted and/or any-optional, instead of just any-external.
