    I know that 8.1 brought better VPN options for RT but the drop down menu does not list Cisco.

    Does anyone know if I can VPN with Cisco on the RT?

    I know that co-workers can do this on their iPads and I would love to be able to do it on my Surface.

    Thanks!

    Windows 8 RT VPN

    Thanks for the article but I think I am more confused than before. I have logged in via a VPN but never set one up. From what I can tell; I cannot connect to a Cisco VPN at this point. This is a little disappointing. Maybe a future update will make it possible.

    You cannot use Cisco LazyConnect, but Surface RT is capable of connecting to a PROPERLY CONFIGURED Cisco VPN appliance.

    how do I know if my company's is properly configured?

    I doubt they would change it for me but if there are instructions somewhere then I might have a chance

    Best bet is to have a wander down to the IT guys and see if they're willing to configure it/give you the relevant details.

    They just have to enable ipsec connections.

    I appreciate everyone helping; I will bug the IT guys and hope that MS/Cisco work on an option that makes it easier in the future
