On some of our windows 10 computers we are not able to change IPv4 properties for VPN client connections using the GUI anymore. Clicking on the properties button just does nothing: no error message, nada. And no, the button itself is NOT disabled.

VPN-IPv4-Properties

This is kind of annoying because we must disable the „Use default gateway“ option for our VPN connections to work properly.

As a workaround, until there is a fix available from Microsoft, and because PowerShell is our friend, we configure this (or other) options via PowerShell.

Show a list of all VPN connections:

Get-VpnConnection

Now change „Use default gateway“, e.g. SplitTunneling, option to „No“:

Set-VpnConnection -Name „VPN Name“ -SplitTunneling $True

Again, to check if the value of „SplitTunneling“ changed from False to True for the vpn connection:

Get-VpnConnection

Result:
SplitTunneling

All done!
