Fix Windows Server Update for VPN, RDP and RRAS Connections

Major issues with recent updates

Connectivity issues are arising for VPN and RDP on servers with Routing and Remote Access Service (RRAS) enabled. RRAS allows additional TCP connection and routing features, such as remote access or site-to-site connectivity using a VPN. The recent update by Microsoft is ‘Windows Server 2019 2012 R2 KB5014746’. This however, is creating freezes, which can only be cured via uninstalling the update.

How to fix
