VPN Error 942 Unable to connect to PPTP VPN with Windows 8

This is a bug with Windows 8 which doesnt have any radio buttons checked for Authentication.

To fix…

  1. Right click on my newly created VPN connection and select “View connection properties
  2. Click on the Security tab.
  3. If you notice, none of the radio buttons under Authentication is checked.
  4. Choose “Allow these protocols” and click OK.
