Why is the food selection bar revealing the VPN "Disconnecting" computer animation for life?
You recognize just how when you disconnect from a VPN, you get a little scrolling "Disconnecting ..." alert in the upper right alert location?
Well, I'm obtaining that, yet it never ever vanishes. It is been "Disconnecting" currently for 20 mins. The VPN is not, in fact, linked any longer, yet the UI will not allow me reconnect currently.
The Network choices panel reveals the very same trouble :
The console reveals that the disconnect did, in fact, take place :
Somehow the only trouble is that the UI is encouraged that I'm still separating, that makes it difficult to connect once more.
What is the standing received the Network pane of System Preferences? You can connect and also disconnect your VPN from there. Re - opening up the link from there my settle the trouble. You can additionally toggle the presence of the VPN food selection from that pane, and also see if that aids.
SystemUIServer * procedure runs a lot of right stuff in the the food selection bar. Eliminate it and also it might address your trouble if it is simply a UI problem and also not something much deeper.
I've handled this by developing 2 various "Locations" in System Preferences > Network. Among them (called "work") consists of the VPN link and also the various other ("home") does not. Changing areas while the VPN is stuck "Disconnecting" settles the trouble for me.
By the way, I've additionally set up the "home" area to make use of a fixed IP address and also port - forwarding to boost my lawful peer - to - peer filesharing experience.
Maybe you can attempt shutting down and also reactivating the solution. In the Network area of the System Preferences, select the VPN, click the equipment logo design at the end of the checklist, and also click "Make Service Inactive" :
Then do the very same point once more to reactivate it and also see if it functions.
If you are making use of a PPTP VPN, attempt by hand eliminating the "pppd" procedure.
sudo killall pppd
If that does not address it, you might require to add a - 9 to by force eliminate the procedure. You need to attempt without first though.
sudo killall -9 pppd
