ShrewSoft VPN failed to attach to key daemon error

If you are using ShrewSoft VPN client and suddenly it does not connect with error "failed to attach to key daemon", then most likely one or all of the ShrewSoft services are not working.
Start theses services to solve the issue:

  • ShrewSoft DNS Proxy Daemon
  • ShrewSoft IKE Daemon
  • ShrewSoft IPSEC Daemon

    1. I have the Shrew Soft VPN Access Manager program, and I do not know where that "Start" is, can you tell?

      Thank you

    2. Hi Irene,
      the "start" is the "start menu" on your desktop (the bottom left button on windows), here you can find a command named "run", select it and follow the instructions of the admin.

      So you go to the start menu, you find "run" and write "services.msc". A window will appear and you can search for "Shrewsoft ..." and start them with right-click + start.

      I hope that I'm clear !

    1. You should try this: in cmd prompt write this command: shutdown /s /t 0 . Then turn on your computer again. Run the program as Administrator.

      These steps helped me
