Problem with Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 connecting to Windows 2003 VPN server via VPN
Posted on 2014-08-19
I'm hoping someone here on EE can help me or has a solution to a Windows 8 VPN problem.
I have a Windows 2003 standard server that runs and handles VPN services/connections;for some reason I cannot connect to my VPN network with a Windows 8.1 machine using the OS default VPN application.
I messed around with the different security setting but none of the setting seems to work for me. I keep getting different authentication error. One of the error I received is an VPN 800 error.
I don't know if this is a compatibility issue with Windows 8.1 or if 8.1 standard doesn't have the network features that allow you to connect to domain network running on an older system. On a different forum, some mentioned that Windows 8.1 Professional is the solution but I haven't tried it because I currently don't have a computer with Pro is installed to test it.
Anyone has this problem? Can someone verify that upgrading to Window 8.1 Pro is the solution to my problem? Any workaround will be greatly appreciated?
Thanks in advance.
