  1. Double click on the VPN connection and go to ‘Properties’, then ‘Options”. Ensure‘Include logon domain’ is unchecked.
  2. Go to the Security tab, set the ‘‘Security Options’ to ‘Advanced’ and click the‘Settings’ button.
  3. Ensure that ‘Data Encryption’ is set to ‘Require data encryption’, and that under‘Allow these protocols’, only the ‘MS-CHAP v2′ check box is enabled and click ‘OK’, then click‘OK’ again.
  4. Enter the username into the ‘Username’ field and the AuthAnvil Two Factor Auth passcode (PIN + OTP) into the ‘Password’ field. Click “Connect” to establish a VPN connection using strong authentication.
