For maximum security, you may want to create a port forwarding rule that forwards a random “external port”—such as 23243—to “internal port” 1723 on your computer. This will allow you to connect to the VPN server using port 23243, and will protect you from malicious programs that scan and attempt to automatically connect to VPN servers running on the default port.
We’ve covered before. Connecting to a VPN is easy, as Windows and most other operating systems offer built-in VPN support.
And at this point, your VPN server is up and running, ready to take incoming connection requests.If you want to disable the VPN server in the future, you can simply return to the “Network Connections” window and delete the “Incoming Connections” item.
On the next page, select the“Through the Internet” option to allow VPN connections over the Internet. That’s likely the only option you’ll see here, but you could also allow incoming connections over a dial-up modem if you have the dial-up hardware.

To disconnect from a VPN, click it and click “Disconnect”. You can then reconnect to it later by clicking it and selecting Connect. You can have multiple VPNs configured and switch between them in this way.
Click the network name in the popup menu and Windows will open the Settings Network Internet VPN window for you. Select the VPN and click “Connect” to connect to it. You can also configure or remove VPN connections from here.
Next, you can select the networking protocols that should be enabled for incoming connections. For example, if you don’t want people connected to the VPN to have access to shared files and printers on your local network, you can disablethe “File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks” option.
