I recently bumped into a little issue when connecting to my companies corp network using the VPN Client built into Windows 8. I haven’t run into this issue on XP, Vista, or Windows 7 so I wondered if something was new that may have prevented this. And I guessed it right.
After getting the following error:
Now having had this type of issue I looked into the VPN properties :
I noticed the following authentication settings were not selected. So I selected Microsoft CHAP version 2 under the ‘allow these protocols and attempt to dial in and it worked. I later tested this on another Windows 8 setup I have run inside of a Virtual Machine and got the same.
It’s odd that this is the default setup on a newly made connect, but the solution to fix is simple.
End Notes: This was on a PPTP VPN Configuration; I’ll be testing SSTP soon.
