Connecting Windows 7 to OSX Yosemite Server VPN

We have set-up a VPN connection using L2TP security on Yosemite Server. Macs can connect fine, it's perfect.

However, we need to connect to this server from Windows 7 and newer machines.

We do not want to edit the registry as Apple's solution is here; https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT202384

Is there another way / an easy way to connect Windows machines to the OSX Server VPN connection without the end-user having to edit registry values?

A quick little walk-through would be appreciated.

Thank you.

unfortunately you have a solution which involves changing default parameters via a registry edit. And you don't want to do it.. A registry change can be done via group policy or importing a regisry entry or using the reg command i.e. reg add hklm\asss\asss\  Pick your poison that is how it is done.
