  • Neither SSTP nor  IKEv2 require a pre-shared key or certificate for client machine authentication. Only we must have the certificate in the VPN server, Is it correct?

  • Hi,

    For the remote client machine, we only need to verify that the issuer of the NPS server certificate was trusted. If you established a CA in your domain, make sure the CA was trusted in client side. If you using a NPS server self-signed certificate, add this certificate to all machines computer Trust Root Certification Authorities container.
