Eddie 2.20.1 works fine. Every time I attempt to upgrade to any version higher than that, all connections fail with the above error.

All settings are the same. I attempted uninstalling the old TAP driver and letting Eddie install it again. Same problem.

I now don't have my installer for the old 2.20.1 version anymore so I am stuck without a VPN!

The only option I notice missing in later versions is "Force TAP interface UP" under Microsoft Windows Only on the advanced tab. In 2.20.1 I have this enabled, along with "Force usage of bundled plink.exe" and everything works fine.

This options is missing in future versions and all of them have the same error above including the 2.23 beta.

This is Windows 11 64-bit with the latest updates as of Nov. 1st, 2023.

Please feel free to open a ticket for support and in the meantime you can retrieve Eddie 2.20.0 by clicking "Other versions" on the usual Windows download page:
Select "2.20.0" and you will be brought back to the download page, pointing this time to Eddie 2.20.0. Download as usual.

In the ticket please include a system report generated by Eddie after the problem has occurred. Please see here to do so:

You might also like to test Eddie 2.23.2 and check whether the problem gets resolved or not. To download Eddie 2.23.2 please see here:

Kind regards
