In this short post, we will connect to the VPN server we configured in my other post from a remote computer running Windows 10.
First, we go to Network and Sharing Center, by right-clicking on the Network icon on the desktop and selecting Properties. Next, we select Set up a new connection or network:
Select Connect to a workplace:
Enter your public IP address (or the host name, if you have a dynamic IP and are using a service like NoIP)
Once the VPN connection has been created, we need to change one setting, so we go back to Network Connections and access the properties. Select Use Extensible Authentication Protocol, and click OK.
Double click on the VPN connection, enter your credentials and you’re done.
Now, remember: this connection will only work if you followed my tutorial about setting up VPN in Windows Server 2012 R2, and used the exact same settings. If you set up the VPN server with different security settings, then you will have to set the client accordingly.
