    #justthefacts:  Patch issues:  Business/Enterprise only impact:  VPN interaction, Home users on 8.1 should be fine

    Seeing several reports that the optional out of band KB4578013 for Windows 8.1/Server 2012R2 is interacting with VPN software.

    Shan on the patchmanagement.org listserve said that their Cisco Anyconnect client users in a specific domain was having issues.  He traced it down to a specific domain that had the group policy “Digitally encrypt or sign secure channel data (always):  set to enabled as causing the conflict. If it was set to disabled /or KB4578013 was uninstalled it worked.

    Anyone else seeing similarly? MJ had a similar report where it messed up remote access/vpn.
