    Hi All.

    I see that WP8.1.1 dev preview currently enables support for L2TP with IPsec as a VPN option!

    This is great!!!! Except for me it doesn't work........

    Has anyone else managed to get this to work?

    ​I have used the instructions from my proxy vendor to fill in all the fields, I have the pre-shared key and everything and no matter what it just refuses to work......over both wifi or cellular. I can connect to the VPN from PC on the same network when using WiFi so I have no issues contacting the VPN server via the network, the WP device just refuses to establish connection. Before the last update I was getting not connected to network error message......now I am getting 809 VPN proxy doesn't have open ports......

    While I haven't got a clue of what you're talking about as I use a different VPN standard, I can speculate that since you actually log from PC on that same account maybe your VPN assigns 1 device per account? or maybe you need to log out of your PC if it's connected to VPN before trying this, Or maybe its just badly implemented VPN on MS part. Most of my issues with Microsoft products always had strange funny reason like the time and date which is important (make sure you're using up to the second correct time and date).

    Allowed 5 devices connected simultaneously.

    Have tried keeping the PC off just to be thorough tho.

    ​Also have an Android tablet connecting fine but I believe it is using an OpenVPN implementation so in a different ballpark to L2TP with IPsec

    ​Are you using L2TP with CyberGhost or do they provide a plug-in (app)?

    I have an extra code for 1year premium subscription of CyberGhost. I can exchange it with Windows store card. See if you want it.

    Thanks, CyberGhost is not overly torrent friendly tho, and they are doing packet inspection to explicitly block P2P packets which is a big no no from a privacy provider in my eyes. No DPI should be happening by a VPN provider so teh CyberGhost fails my needs unfortunately.
