    Surface 2 has a VPN setting in the network settings somewhere. I don't have my device with me at work, but I'm sure I've seen it while I was poking around.

    We have added support for a wider range of VPN clients in both Windows and Windows RT devices. We have also added the ability to have an app automatically trigger VPN connections.
    Auto-triggered VPN

    When you select an app or resource that needs access through the inbox VPN – like a company’s intranet site – Windows 8.1 automatically prompts you to sign in with one click. This feature is be available with Microsoft and third-party inbox VPN clients.

    There is support for F5, Sonicwall, Dell, Microsoft and Juniper VPN in Windows 8.1. Cisco still hasn't worked with Microsoft to finish out the in OS login. Some say it is coming, some say never. Plenty of threads on the MS support pages...

    Juniper client works great on my Surface2 and then I use remote desktop to log in to the work computer.
