A Meraki VPN needs to be running on the other end.


Setting up the VPN Client

In Windows 10 you create a new VPN by going to “Prefferences > VPN > Add VPN-Connection”.

Here you have to enter the detauls from the Meraki Portal.

This is not sufficient however.
In the network prefferences (Windows +R > ncpa.cpl) you have to go to the security tab of the VPN connection and choose “Unencrypted Password” over PAP and only use “MS-CHAP-v2”.

Don’t worry about the “unencrypted” part, the transfer of the unencrypted Password over the PAP protocol is happening inside the CHAPv2 encrypted handshake.

Now the VPN connection can be started.
