I am trying to connect a Windows 8 Laptop to a TZ200 sonicwall via the newest SonicWALL Global VPN Client downloaded from SonicWALL.  It is not working.  Can anyone help me figure this out?  See attached file from the client.

    what type of vpn is configured on the sonicwall and did you follow these steps?  Are you using the office sign in page?

    I do not have an SSL VPN set up and anytime in the past that I have tried setting one up it seems to mess up everything else.  So I am a little reluctant to even do it.  Does it have to be an SSL VPN for windows 8?

    I currently have it as an IKE using preshared secret.

    I am accepting both at this point.  I am not using the Windows  8 laptop so not sure if either works because I did not try them.
