For many users, Juniper still doesn’t work after the upgrade to Windows 8.1, so you are advised to stick with Windows 8 until support for Windows 8.1 gets released
Juniper Networks provides networking equipment in the form of high-performance Internet Protocol network products and services for thousands of business consumers. Its most known routers are the T-series, M-series, E-series, MX-series, EX-series Ethernet switches and SRX-series security products. ButJuniper Network’s SSL VPN platforms and UAC platforms also run Windows 8.
However, Microsoft has recently made available the Windows 8.1 update and many Juniper customers have probably made the switch. What they don’t know yet is that the company doesn’t have yet official support for Windows 8.1, so as a result, Juniper doesn’t work after the upgrade for many users.
On Microsoft’s compatibility center, Juniper Network Connect 7.1 is flagged as not compatible and here are some of the most common problems users are getting in Windows 8.1:
- Juniper VPN Network connect fails with Error code: nc.windows.app.23712
- Juniper VPN Client will not connect in Windows 8.1
Therefore, until official support doesn’t arrive for Windows 8.1, you are strongly advised not to upgrade to Windows 8.1 to avoid such situations.
