Powershell edit vpn connection

Event details

I could not figure out a way to test the VPN cmdlets on my system, but here is a guess of how you could achieve the end result with a workaround, let's say you do a Get-VPNConnection and filter out the name of the connection you want to rename, then you pipe it to Export-CSV and save it to a file, edit the file and change the field for name with your desired new name, save the file, then Import-CSV the modified file and pipe it to Add-VPNConnection, like I said, this is all guesswork since I wasn't able to test it, but it's worth to try, since it won't take much time, regards.

The VPN server is now configured to accept incoming remote access client connections, but only in a limited fashion. Only the PPTP VPN protocol will function without additional configuration. Unfortunately, PPTP suffers from some serious security vulnerabilities in its default configuration, and it should not be used as configured in a production environment. However, it is quick and effective to validate the network communication path and that authentication is working using it.

Microsoft has a guide on . The guide and script are a bit too verbose to fit into the format of a StackExchange answer. (17 page Word document + ~1200 lines of PowerShell + 70 lines of XML)

First there is no argument like this:

Depending on how you actually want to deploy the VPN configuration, you may not need the Group Policy portion of the guide. It's simply used to push out the PowerShell script and supporting XML file as part of a logon script.

Thank you for the post. I configured vpn,its connected.I can get ping from the client to the server.The only issue i am facing i cant access the network resources in the server.When i am accessing the shared files , i cant get it.its getting error network path was not found.Could you please help me to solve it?

Now we'll want to modify the connection, which we can do by piping the output to the :



The VPN server should be configured with two network interfaces; one internal and one external. This powershell edit vpn connection configuration allows for a better security posture, as the external network interface can have a more restrictive firewall profile than the internal interface. A server with two network interfaces requires special attention to the network configuration. Only the external network interface is configured with a default gateway. Without a default gateway on the internal network interface, static routes will have to be configured on the server to allow communication to any remote internal subnets.

And it works perfectly! However, I'd like for the "Automatically use my Windows logon name and password" (and domain, if any) Checkbox (Under MS-CHAP v2) to be checked as well. How do I add that to my command ?

Connections that existed prior to the upgrade will preserve the configuration setting. In order to achieve this functionality for new connections, or to modify existing connections, we need to use PowerShell.
