In the text box labeled ‘Destination name’ type ‘TV4Expats’. This is the name of the connection, and will show up in the “Connect to a network” screen when we’re done

Lastly, make sure that the checkbox labeled “Don't connect now; just set it up so I can connect later” is checked.

Then click the “Next” button.

In this screen, enter your TV4Expats username and password.

In the text box labeled “User name:” , enter your TV4Expats username.

Then, click the ”Create” button

9. Connection Ready

Click the “Close” button to return to the “Network and Internet” screen.

10. Go to the connection

Now click on “Connect to a network” again.

11. Select the connection properties

In the “Connect to a network” screen, you should see the TV4Expats connection that we set just up. Right–click on the TV4Expats connection document and choose “Properties” from the menu.

12. Select Options

In the property window, click the “Options” tab.

13. Deselect domain logon

In the “Options” tab, make sure the checkbox labeled “Include Windows logon domain” is unchecked.

Then click the “PPP Settings…” button.

14. PPP options

In the “PPP Settings” dialog box, make sure the "Enable LCP Extensions"and "Enable software Compression" has been checked, then click the “OK” button.

15. Go to the Security tab

Next, click the “Security” tab.

16. Security tab settings

Choose "Advanced (custome setting)",Then click on "Setting" button.

Make sure that the Data encryption section is set to "Optional encryption".

And the below options should be checked:

At the Pop Up window Click on "Yes".

Then go to the “Networking” tab.

17. Neworking settings

In the list of items that you see, make sure that only the “Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)” and “Client for Microsoft Networks” items are checked. If other protocols are checked, uncheck them by clicking on the checkbox (the thing that looks like a ‘√’).

TV4Expats currently does not route anything except TCP/IP version 4.

18. Done with basic setup!

You’re now done with your basic setup! You've set up your TV4Expats connection to use PPTP. Click “OK” to finish now, if you want.

However, for better security we recommend that you configure your VPN connection to use an L2TP/IPsec connection, which is more secure. To do this, keep reading.

Setting up L2TP/IPsec

In "Networking" tab click on the “Type of VPN” pop–up menu and select “L2TP/IPsec VPN”.

19. Go to IPsec Settings…

Next, click on the “IPsec Settings…” button.

20. Set the Preshared Key

In the “IPsec Settings” dialog, click the radio button labeled “Use preshared key for authentication”. Then type the preshared key that you received in the order email into the textbox labeled “Key”. Then click the “OK” button.

21. Finished!

You’re finished! Click the ”OK” button to save your settings.

22. Set the connection location

The first time you connect to TV4Expats VPN, you might see a screen. Windows is asking you if you want to automatically connect to TV4Expats VPN whenever you’re at a given location. If you want to connect to TV4Expats VPN automatically when you’re at a public hotspot, click “Public location.”

However, you probably should click ”Cancel”, because most public locations require you to click through an agreement before you can access the Internet — meaning that any connection you attempt will fail. Instead, you should just connect manually.

23. Connecting to TV4Expats Servers

To connect to TV4Expats, go to the Start button and click “Connect To”.

Then click on the TV4Expats entry and click “Connect”.
