This will also help you create a .pbk dial up connection file which is easier to move/distribute to other machines.


if your VPN server is a non-Microsoft one such as OpenVPN, Kerio VPN etc, you'll need to download the correct client for them.

@HotCakeX Thank you very much you made my day <3

Oh Anytime! <3
