Windows 7 VPN IKEv2 connection problem

Hi, I am trying to create a VPN connection using IKEv2 to Windows 2008 R2 Routing and Remote Access Server.

I have setup the server and can successfully connect using a standard PPTP. However when trying with IKEv2 I get:

Error 13819: Invalid cerificate type.

I have been unsucessful so far to find much help on this issue. I understand it is possibly due to either the client not having a certificate or the server certificate is incorrect? Not sure which.

Either way I'm not exactly 100% sure how I create the right certificate for the client? I have Certificate Authority installed on the server. But can not find instructions on how to create the correct certificate for this scenerio, if indeed that is what I need to do?

Any help appreciated.

Thankis for your comment asavah, yup found that, and I've now worked my way through this:


and am now getting a different error:

Error 13863: Invalid Situation

Very unhelpful error. Both Server and Win7 client have all updates.

Working my way through this thread:


Finally got to the bottom and now trying the official hotfix from MS. Will post results soon..

My 2nd link provides the required hotfix needed and more detail for Systems with Win 7 SP1 installed and server 2008 SP1 installed.
