Troubleshooting VPN connections on a Windows 10 Pro to Windows Server 2016 Essentials Anywhere Access By Mariette Knap vpn, access anywhere Out of the box VPN on a Windows 10 workstation to your Windows Server 2016 Essentials does not work. We will show you in this tutorial how to create such a VPN connection and how to make it work. If VPN does not work after you have implemented the changes from this document you may want to look into installing DHCP on the server and disabling DHCP on your router. There are some routers that cause trouble when using VPN but I have no idea why this happens. Maybe you can try this How to install and configure DHCP on Windows Server 2012 Essentials or this How to install the DHCP Server role and configure a DHCP scope on a Windows Server 2016 Essentials (TP3). The last one is also valid for the released product. From the Start Menu choose Settings. Choose Network & Internet Choose VPN Click Add a VPN connection In VPN Provider choose Windows (built-in) and fill in the rest, click save. Click Connect We have a problem but the fix is easy. Click Close. Click Change adapter options. Right click the VPN connection and choose properties. Click the Security tab and make you set ‘Allow these protocols’ and check Microsoft CHAP Version 2 (MS-CHAP v2). Click OK to accept the new settings. We are back at our VPN connection and click Connect. Now we should get connected without any issues.
