Connecting to a Windows 2012 Server VPN

How to connect to a windows server 2012 VPN server instance, step by step:

  • Open Network and sharing center
    • Select "Set up a new connection or network" > "Connect to a workplace" > Next > "Use my internet connection"
    • Enter the IP address or FQDN of the server you will be connecting to as well as any description you would like to give it then select don't connect now just set it up so I can connect later.
    • After you've setup the connection select change adapter settings from the network and sharing center.
    • Right click your new connection >Properties
      • Under PPP settings you may want to enable software compression for better performance (may cause issues in certain configurations)
      • Under Security
        • Select the type of VPN, generally PPTP or L2TP if you have a certificate setup.
        • Data encryption can be changed to maximum in most cases
        • Verify that only MS-Chap v2 is checked.
    • (Optional) If you would like to continue to use your internet access but have remote access to the VPN server for files, RDP, Programs, etc... you can uncheck under networking > IPv4(or IPV6 in some cases) > properties >  Advanced > "use default gateway on remote network". Unchecking this will force your local PC to use your local internet access as a gateway.
