Move your mouse to the lower right hot corner to display the Charms Bar. Select Settings.
Select Control Panel.
Click Network and Internet.
Click Network and Sharing Center on the right panel.
Click Setup a new connection or Network.
A wizard to set up a connection or network will be shown. Choose Connect to a workplace to set up a VPN connection. Click Next.
Choose Use my Internet connection (VPN). Your already active Internet connection is used to establish a new one to IPredator.
The Internet address to connect to is depends on which server you wanted to connect to (Eg fr-01.****.com for France 01), for the Destination name just use the same one you enter for Internet address.
fr-01.finchvpn.com address used in the screenshot is a sample address
Open Network and Sharing Center or use shortcut Windows Button+R and run ncpa.cpl
Click on Change adapter settings
Right click on FinchVPN PPTP that you newly created just now and click properties from the context menu.
In the General tab, The Internet address to connect to is depends on which server you wanted to connect to (Eg fr-01.finchvpn.com for France 01). Click the Options tab.
Check Remember my credentials. Click PPP Settings.
Inside the PPP Settings, it is important to have LCP extensions enabled and to have Software compression disabled. Close with OK and go on to the Security tab.
Change the Type of VPN to be PPTP VPN, so the client does not probe for different kinds of VPN. In the Authentication context, make sure to have only Microsoft CHAP Version 2 (MS-CHAP v2) selected. On Windows 8, Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) needs to be deselected. Switch to the Networking tab.
File and printer sharing should generally be disabled on any VPN connection. By disabling these protocols you prevent your machine from inadvertently leaking information to the Internet.
Uncheck IPv6 from the list of available network protocols. Also uncheck File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks as well as Client for Microsoft Networks from the list of used items and click OK. Finally, enter the last tab, Sharing.
If you like to make your FinchVPN connection available to other users available on your machine, check the corresponding setting. Otherwise, just close the dialog window by clicking OK and return to the Desktop.
If you enable Internet Connection Sharing your setup might need extra tweaks to make it work.
Now it is time to bring up your newly created network connection. Move your mouse to the lower right hot corner to display the Charms Bar again. Select Settings.
Click Network, the icon with your network name
Click FinchVPN PPTP that you just created.
Enter username and password in the Network Authentication dialog and click OK.
It will show Connected if your connection was succesfully
