Windows 8 VPN client

Connecting to a VPN is a similar process in Windows 8. Press the Windows key, type VPN, click the Settings category, and select the same Set up a virtual private network (VPN) connectionoption as in Windows 7.

You’ll see the same VPN connection window on the desktop. Enter the address and name of your VPN.

You’ll then see the Networks pane appear. Select the VPN you added and click Connect.

Enter the username and password credentials your VPN requires and you can connect to the VPN.

To access the Network pane in the future, click the network icon in the system tray or open the charms bar, select Settings, and select Network.

To connect or disconnect from a VPN, select it in the Network pane and use the Connect or Disconnect buttons.
To remove a saved VPN connection, press the Windows key, type View network connections, select the Settings category, and click the View network connections option. Right-click a VPN Connection and select Delete to remove it.
