In this tutorial we will show you how to set up SSTP VPN on Windows 10 but first let’s see what are our requirements and recommendations.
If you still want to set up SSTP VPN manually, go step-by-step through following instructions:
From the lower right corner click on “Action Center” icon (1). Then press on “VPN” (2).
This will open “Network & Internet” settings window. Click on “Add a VPN connection” (3).
On the next page fill the fields with the following settings:
“VPN provider” (4) – Windows (built-in).
“Connection name” (5) – Give a memorable name to this connection. For example name it “CactusVPN SSTP”.
“Server name or address” (6) – enter the SSTP hostname of the CactusVPN server you want to connect to. You can find the whole list of SSTP hostnames in your account, under the “Package details”.
“VPN type” (7) – select “Secure Socket Tunneling Protocol (SSTP)”.
“Type of sign-in info” (8) – select User name and password.
In the “User name” (9) and “Password” (10) 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 all selected data once again and press “Save” (11).
Now you can see your VPN connection (12) was created.
To connect to SSTP protocol click ok Network icon (Wi-Fi or wired) and click on the desired VPN connection (13).
This will open your “Network and Internet” settings. Click on desired VPN connection and press on “Connect” button (14).
