    The Junos Pulse VPN doesn't work, just like Windows 8.1. Grr...

    Okay, so you can't just "use" VPN. You need an account with a VPN provider, either a paid account with a site like hidemyass.com or a corporate VPN.

    I have a corporate account. And we use Cisco anyconnect, and Junos Pulse. Doesn't work on Windows RT, or Windows Phone 8.1.

    yep, LOL JUST as I was predicting. "Enterprise VPN" support on 8.1 is a hollow promise. If Anyconnect support isn't there you can pretty much write off 30% of the market.

    I don't know of any unlimited-free VPN providers - VPNReactor - FAQ's -> Free VPN Accounts provides limited connections for up to 30 min at a time, but I found the free service to be bad, at its very best and unusable at worst. VPNreactor paid accounts cost like $8 a month though, just pay for it.

    So, how can i add a L2TP or SSTP VPN Connection? I only have IKEv2 to choose.

    You can't. MS "forgot" that there are other protocols out there besides ikev2 :(. try finding a vpn provider with ikev2 support

    I'm sick of Microsoft's passive aggressive stance on VPN. Support the frickin competition because not everyone is going to ditch their current AnyConnect setup for DirectAccess RAS Server BS.

    VPN's aren't for connecting OUT. They are for connecting IN. Since you said you are trying to connect to WhatsApp, using VPN won't help you since you don't have something on the far end to connect to.

    In my case i want to connect to my Company Network via VPN. We have currently two Remote Access Servers. One is L2TP based and the other one SSTP. Im really not asking much, only that i can do what everyone else can do. Every Android, every iPhone, every Blackberry. Hell, i carry my old WP 6.5 Phone in my bag so i have the possibility to make the VPN Connection in case of an emergency.

    So, is the missing of L2TP and SSTP a Preview Thing and it will be added shortly via Update or App or is it officially not supported?

    I was disappointed as well for not having pptp. I will investigate if I can switch the vpn connection in the company to IKEv2

    I downloaded 3 vpn apps. All were recognized by the vpn app in wp8.1, but none of them managed to establish pptp connection. I guess I will investigate more in the next few days, and I'm sure more vpn apps will pop up soon.

    The VPN apps in the store are actually like "plug-ins" , after you download them you have to select them from within the main vpn configuration under settings.

    The 3 apps I tried are:

    Check Point Mobile VPN
    Junos Pulse VPN
    WonicWALL Mobile Connect

    None of them helped me connect to my PPTP vpn.

    I guess all of them are only support they're product, like Junos or WonicWALL.
    Now there is a new problem , when I connect to my VPN, the user name that added Windows Phone¥ before it

    Junos is working for me at my work. Might be the way your admins have the firewall configured.

    So close, windows, so close. No support for my Barracuda SSL VPN, so this update does nothing for me. The one thing I wanted, L2TP or IPSec... Nothing. Thanks MS! Everything else looks cool in the OS though, just can't use it. My 920 goes back on shelf.
