You can use the Get Connected Wizard to create a VPN profile. To launch the wizard, type vpn in Settings, and then click Set up a virtual private network (VPN) connection.
Figure 1: Launch the Get Connected Wizard
In the wizard, you will provide the Internet address of the Remote Access VPN server to which you will connect, and a name for the new connection. You can use an IP address or the fully qualified domain name of the Remote Access server.
To find your server settings, on a computer running Windows 8 with a VPN already configured, view the connection properties as shown in Figure 8. The destination name is the text that will be used for the VPN connection name (profile name), as shown in Figure 2.
You can click Remember Credentials to save your credentials on the first successful connection attempt. This creates a new REF _Ref324847461 \h Discovery Profile, which the client can use to connect to the VPN.
