I had this question after viewing Best strategy for set up a VPN from Windows 10 to a work network. Bonus if windows 7 also can connect..

Windows 10 gives me 5 VPN choices:

  1. PPTP
  2. L2TP/IPsec with certificate
  3. L2TP/IPsec with pre-shared key
  4. SSTP
  5. IKEv2

I want HTTPS/SSL based VPN. Which of the options above is HTTPS/SSL?
