    Hello,
    I have Lumia 950 just for a few hours and the first thing I was curious about was VPN support. It's very important for me.
    But I realized I am not able to connect PPTP as well as L2TP VPN.
    If I try to connect PPTP VPN, connection error number 691 appears after negotiating credentials. L2TP VPN connects but it can't ping anywhere through the tunnel. If I set these two on Windows 10 desktop in he same way, everything works pefectly, so it's not a VPN server misconfiguration.

    Is there anybody who managed to use PPTP or L2TP VPN connection successfully?

    Thank you very much.

    I am also curios on W10M VPN support. PPTP should be discarded immediately due to a "5-mins-to-crack" fact. I will not expose my LAN to WAN with this, ever, never,

    windows Phone 8.1/Mobile 10 L2TP with PSK has not worked ever even with new 10586.164 build against Synology NAS VPN server..
    Still waiting for this to be fixed... openVPN client is just a feaverdream I guess..

    win 10 desktop L2TP internal needs RegHack to work.. but it works.
    OpenVPN works perfectly on desktop without any hacks.. best there is.
