Windows 10 VPN?

Have been using Win7Pro machines for years now, we VPN to our home office. If I get a laptop with Windows 10 OS, will it VPN and will it have all the networking capabilities I have with the Professional version of Win7Pro? Not sure how else to ask them, but to further clarify, with various versions of Windows 7, you can't do certain things. I don't remember all the differences, I just know that we had to be sure all machines were running Win7Pro in order to be able to connect to LAN and server and Exchange and also for VPN. So, is that the same issue with Windows 10, or does Windows 10 OS have all the stuff I need to work with our business LAN and server and VPN and Exchange?

Our server is SBS 2008 and Exchange is 2007.

Win10 Pro can use VPNs. You will need pro or enterprise to work in a domain network, anyway.

Ask bestbuy. If the bestbuy site doesn't explicitely say it's the pro edition, I guess it is not pro.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I use Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. There is a VPN Tool built in. I choose to use NCP Secure Entry because it is a highly reliable and robust VPN application. I encourage you to consider it. It saves time for me and for my customers.

HP advertises the machine as Windows 10 Home. Pro is a paid upgrade but is available. You need to be specific with your vendor.
