I want to connect to SharePoint online SharePoint admin center using this code:

Connect-SPOService -url $TenantAdminUrl -Credential $SPCredential

but I keep getting this error:

Message: The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a send.

Now I know that Connect-SPOService -url $TenantAdminUrl -Credential $SPCredential does not work while MFA is enabled. so that why we disable the MFA for all users, and when users try to access any SharePoint site using the web-browser, they will not be asked for MFA, then will just get this message:

so could this message be the issue? and how can I fix this?

You can use SharePoint Online Management Shell to connect with multi-factor authentication (MFA) enabled SharePoint site using below command:

Connect-SPOService -Url https://contoso-admin.sharepoint.com

Follow below documentation:

To connect with multi-factor authentication (MFA).


For more information & other ways to login when MFA is enabled, check this thread: Connect-SPOService : The sign-in name or password does not match one in the Microsoft account system
