If you need to disconnect from your VPN connection for any reason, the process is usually simple. Most VPN clients will have a “disconnect” button somewhere in the interface. Clicking this will immediately terminate the connection and close down the software. If you’re using a third-party VPN client, consult their documentation on how to properly disconnect from the service.
In some cases, you may need to disable your VPN connection entirely. This can be useful if you’re troubleshooting networking issues or want to temporarily disable the extra layer of security provided by the VPN. To do this, head to your operating system’s Network Connections settings and find the entry for your VPN connection. Select it and click “Disable.”
One way is to simply reboot your router. This will cause the ExpressVPN connection to be dropped and you’ll be able to surf the web without VPN protection.
Another way is to log into your router’s administration panel and find the section for VPN connections. From here, you should be able to disable the ExpressVPN connection or even remove it entirely.
Once you’ve disconnected from ExpressVPN, you’ll be able to browse the internet as usual without any restrictions. You can always reconnect at any time by following the same steps that you used to originally set up the connection.
1. Navigate to the VPN gateway in the Azure portal.
2. Under the Monitoring section, select Point-to-site Sessions.
3. You can view all current sessions in the windowpane.
4. Select “…” for the session you want to disconnect, then select Disconnect.
