Windows 10 IKEv2 Setup

Modified on: Fri, 21 Jul, 2017 at 5:24 PM


While we recommend using our OpenVPN application as the first option to connect to our service on Windows 10 machine, there might be some cases where this will fail to work in addition to the built in L2TP or PPTP option.


In these cases, you can try our alternative IKEv2 VPN connection, which connects fast and are known to be more stable on mobile networks compared to the other protocols.


To set up our IKEv2 VPN service for Microsoft's Windows 10, follow the steps below.



Step 1: Getting Started


From your desktop screen, click on the Network icon which can be found at the bottom right hand corner of your screen and click on Network Settings.
