Description

The Disconnect-VpnUser cmdlet disconnects a VPN connection originated by a specific user or originating from a specific client computer.

The list of active VPN connections originating or ending on a VPN server is stored in the inbox accounting store on the server. Therefore, this cmdlet would have to be run on the server where the connection starts or ends to disconnect a user.

A VPN connection can be disconnected in one of the following two ways. Note: Only one of these methods can be used at a time.

-- By user name of the user who originated the connection.

-- By tunnel IP address assigned by the VPN server.

Required Parameters

-HostIPAddress

Specifies the list of tunnel IP addresses of the VPN connection. These can be IPv4 or IPv6 addresses.
