VPN Works for Windows 7 but not Windows 8.1

Is there a difference in VPN connections on windows 7 and windows 8.1?

I can get windows 7 to connect via window VPN perfectly using the IP address.  

However if I do the windows 8.1 VPN and pick microsoft as the provider and use the same IP and the same username and password it will not connect and gives me the attached error.

Any ideas?

"error 942 - the connection could not be established because the authentication method is not supported by RAS/VPN"

According to Microsoft's site, the description for that error is as follows: "The connection could not be established because the authentication method used by your connection profile is not permitted for use by an access policy configured on the RAS/VPN server. Specifically, this could be due to configuration differences between the authentication method selected on the RAS/VPN server and the access policy configured for it."

This might be a dumb question but in 8.1 how do I get to the security tab, when I right click the VPN connection all I get is Edit, and that is a simple screen not a windows tabbed screen like in the article.
