Your PC does not meet the host checking requirements... -455



We are trying to get rid of this -455 error : .

We have to tell our users to wait up to 4 minutes after the pc has booted before connecting to VPN.

Even if the Anvirus is well loaded, we will get this error message.

We are using ESET antivirus and it is well detected with WMI:


displayName: Windows Defender instanceGuid: {D68DDC3A-831F-4fae-9E44-DA132C1ACF46} pathToSignedProductExe: windowsdefender:// pathToSignedReportingExe: %ProgramFiles%\Windows Defender\MsMpeng.exe productState: 393472 timestamp: Tue, 01 Dec 2020 18:39:45 GMT displayName: ESET Security instanceGuid: {885D845F-AF19-0124-FECE-FFF49D00F440} pathToSignedProductExe: C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Security\ecmds.exe pathToSignedReportingExe: C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Security\ekrn.exe productState: 266240


After some research I finally realized that the Security center seems to be the culprit.

It is not loading fast enough.


We are using agent version our windows 10 french workstation.


Any help will be greatly apreciated.

I will answer my own post :


The problem is related to the Security Center not starting fast enough:

Here is a simple registry fix:


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wscsvc] "DelayedAutoStart"=dword:00000000


Problem solved.
