The latest firmware(v3.6.4) for DrayTek Vigor 2850 line of routers breaks Anywhere Access for Windows Server 2012 Essentials when it is setup with an Static IP address and an SLL Certificate for your own domain name.
The problem lies to the new feature introduced by DrayTek latest firmware called SSL VPN.

So what’s happening?
When I start up my machine I am presented with the login screen. Upon logging in it says Welcome, then switches to “Waiting for the User Profile Service” from anywhere between 60 and 90 seconds.
