How to create a PPTP VPN connection using Microsoft Windows 7

Windows 7 PPTP Setup

1. From the Start button, select “Connect To.”
2. Windows Start menu

Select “Set up a connection or network.”

3. Creating a new VPN connection

Select “Connect to a workplace” and click “Next.”

4. Choosing a connection option

Select “Use my Internet Connection (VPN).”

5. Choosing how to connect

NOTE: If prompted for “Do you want to use a connection that you already have?”, select “No, create a new connection” and click “Next.”

6. Inputting the Internet Address and Connection name

Destination Name: PPTP (or whatever you like, really)
Click “Next.”

7. Inputting the username and password

User Name: Enter your VPN username

There are two formats for usernames and they are NOT interchangeable. Please see the “details” under your active services via the portal to see your correct username.

Format 1: [email protected] (notice that there is no .net at the end)
Format 2: W\[email protected] (the W \ must be present)

Password: your PPTP password

8. That’s pretty much it…two more clicks!

Click the Create or Next button
Click the Close button


Click on “Start,” then “Connect to.”
Select the VPN connection in the window and click “Connect.”
If you do not have a “Connect to” option when you click Start:

go to Start > Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center Then “Connect to a network”. You should have your PPTP account listed there. Please click on that PPTP account and click connect. Make sure you manually input the server you want to connect to.
