This should bring up a blue bar with an "All Apps" button in the bottom right corner. Select "All Apps".

Find "Control Panel" under "Windows System".

Choose "Set up a new connection or network"

Choose "Connect to a workplace".

Choose "Use my Internet connection (VPN)"

Enter in the internet address and destination name, as well as unchecking "Remember my credentials."

The address is: 131.252.212.14
Destination name could be anything you can remember the VPN by. We recommend PSU CECS VPN or something of the same.

Afterwards, a black Networks bar will be brought up to the right. Select the VPN name you chose, and right click and "View Connection Properties"

Click the Security tab, and select "Allow these protocols" and then only check "MS-CHAP v2" and no other boxes.

Close all the opened menus, and then connect to the VPN from the Networks bar on the right using CECS\yourusername and your password.
