In this tutorial we will show you how to set up PPTP VPN on Windows 10 mobile but first let’s see what are our requirements and recommendations.
If you want to set up VPN manually, go step-by-step through following instructions to set up PPTP VPN on Windows 10 mobile.
Swipe down from the top of the screen and go to “All settings” (1).
Select “Network & wireless” (2).
Go to “VPN” (3).
Tap on “Add a VPN connection” (4).
On the next screen fill the fields with the following settings:
“VPN provider” – “Windows (built-in)” (5).
“Connection” (6) – you must give a name to this connection, for example “CactusVPN PPTP”.
“Server name or address” (7) – type server name or address you want to connect. You can find the whole list in your account, under the “Package details”.
“VPN type” (8) – “Point to Point Tunnelling Protocol (PPTP)”.
“Type of sign-in info”- “Username and password” (9).
In the “Username” (10) and “Password” (11) fields type your VPN username and password. You can find them in your account on our website, by going to your package. Make sure you use your VPN username and password and NOT the website account credentials (What is the difference?).
Check “Remember my sign-in info” (12) to save your username and password.
Check all selected data once again and press “Save” (13).
You have set up PPTP VPN on Windows 10 mobile. To connect just tap “Connect” button (14). Remember that Windows 10 mobile will allow you to quickly connect to the last used VPN server via “Action Centre” (menu pulled from the top of the screen).
To disconnect just tap “Disconnect” button.
