Are you wondering how to setup Windows VPN? There aren’t a lot of advantages to Windows when it comes to security or reliability—but who can deny it’s the easiest system to use? Similarly, Windows VPN is also relatively easy to install. The only complexity will involve what version of Windows you have.
To setup Windows VPN on Win 7, take these steps:
- First, learn the settings information from your network administrator and then open the Wizard application. This is found in the Network and Internet options, as well as the Network and Sharing Center.
- Choose set up a connection or network and then click Connect.
- Navigate to the Security tab and then choose the type of VPN from the menu. Click OK and Connect. This is for Outgoing. For Incoming, take the same steps but choose the Change Adapter Settings option and then choose File followed by New Incoming Connection. Choose the users and then decide upon who gets access. Finally, choose the Internet Protocol of your choice.
To setup Windows VPN on XP version, take these steps:
- Open Network Connections and choose Create a New Connection.
- Choose Virtual Private Network Connection and then enter your VPN name. Make your choice on the Public Network screen and then choose Automatically Dial This Initial Connection, but only if the computer is not constantly connected to the net. This only assures you that VPN will be active when the connection has been established.
- Enter the name or IP address as provided by the VPN provider. Choose My Use Only on Connection Availability, unless you want other users to also have this protection. Afterward, click Finish.
For a Windows PPTP server, follow these steps:
- Create a new connection, and choose Advanced Connection.
- Make sure the option to Accept Incoming Connections is checked.
- Choose the devices for Incoming Connections (the default) and then choose Allow Virtual Private Connections.
- You can now choose which users are allowed to use VPN features. Simply check or uncheck.
- The Networking Software should already be installed and ready to go, so leave this option alone and then click Finish.
For additional help, contact customer support at Microsoft. Windows is the least secure of all OS’s so never use public or wireless Internet without online protection! Find a VPN provider who can help you in this regard.
