We recommend using the EZConnect Connection Manager for accessing our VPN service. If you’d like to manually configure Windows 10 the following guide shows how to setup a L2TP VPN connection. If you have any questions about setup please contact our support team.

Step One: Right click on the Network connection icon in the task bar next to the clock and choose “Open Network and Sharing Center”.

Step Two: Click on “Set up a new connection or network”.

Step Three: Choose “Connect to a workplace” and click next.

Step Four: Enter the server address of the location you would like to connect to in the “Internet address” field. Server addresses can be found here. Enter a descriptive name for the connection in the “Destination name” field. The name given here will be how the connection is recognized throughout Windows 10. Now click on “Create”.

Step Five: You should now be returned to the “Network and Sharing Center” main window. Click on “Change adapter settings” in the left menu.

Step Six: Locate the newly created VPN connection and right click it. Now click on “Properties”.

Step Seven: Click on the “Security” tab. Now click on the “Type of VPN” drop down menu and choose “Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol with IPSec (L2TP/IPSec)”.


Step Eight: Click on the “Advanced settings”.


Step Nine: Select “Use preshared key for authentication” and enter “vpn” in the key text box without the quotes. Click OK.


Step Ten: Click on the “Data encryption” drop down menu and choose “Maximum strength encryption (disconnect if server declines)”. Click OK.

Step Eleven: Now return to your Desktop screen. Click on the “Network” icon in the system tray next to the clock.

Step Twleve: Once the “Network and Internet” window opens click on VPN. You should now see the newly created VPN Zoom connection. Click on it choose “Connect”.

Step Thirteen: Enter your username and password. Please note that since we are creating a connection directly within Windows 10 we need to add @vpnzoom after the username (ex. username@vpnzoom). Click OK after entering your credentials.

Step Fourteen: Congratulations! You are now connected to our secure, high speed server using L2TP protocol in Windows 10. Enjoy browsing the Internet anonymously.
