Instructions to Create & Configure an SSTP VPN Connection on Windows Vista System

SSTP protocol is not used commonly by VPN providers, so there is a need of a manual configuration guide for the users having this service availed. A detailed tutorial on how to create an SSTP VPN connection on your Windows Vista system is given below.

  • Begin the setup process at the desktop, click on the ‘Start’ icon and then click on the ‘Control Panel’ option in the start menu.
  • On the ‘Control Panel’ window, click on the ‘Network and Internet’ option to open the network window. Here you need to click on the ‘network & sharing center’ option to open the network and sharing center.
  • In the next step, click on the link labelled ‘ Setup a connection or network’, from several links given on the left hand side of the window.
  • Now click on the ‘connect to workplace’ option and then click on ‘next’ button to proceed to the next step.
  • Click on the option ‘Use my internet connection (VPN)’ to proceed with the creation of a new VPN connection.
  • Here, you will be prompted for the ‘internet address’ and ‘destination name’. In the ‘internet address’ field, enter the IP address of your VPN provider that is provided to you in the welcome mail or VPN provider’s website or you can contact customer service for the same. In the ‘destination name’ field, enter a desired name for the VPN connection so that you can recognize the connection later on.
  • Check the box for ‘Don’t connect now’ option to avoid establishing a connection prior to the configuration and then click on the ‘next’ button to proceed.
  • Now, you need to enter the log in credentials of your VPN service, which are again available in the welcome mail. Input the ‘username’ and ‘password’ values in the desired fields and check the option ’remember this password’ to avoid entering these details every time you wish to connect.
  • Click on the ‘create’ button to get done with the network creation, after which, you will get a window saying ‘the connection is ready to use’. Don’t click on the ‘connect now’ button, rather click on ‘close’ button and proceed to the configuration process.
  • From the same left-side menu on the network & sharing center, click on the option ‘manage network connections’ to get a list of all the available connections.
  • Right-click on the connection that you created and choose the ‘properties’ option from the menu. On the properties menu, move to the ‘networking’ tab and change the value for ‘type of VPN’ to SSTP and then click on ‘OK’ to finish the process.
  • To connect to the network, click on the network tray icon and select ‘connect or disconnect’ option from the small window displayed. You will get a list of connections, from where, you need to select the desired connection and click on connect to establish a connection.
