VPN Client Error 87 - Incorrect Parameters RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I just upgraded from Windows 7 to 8.1 Pro. I tried to setup the VPN with same exact settings as in Win 7 , but I get Error 87 - Incorrect Parameters. I am 100% sure it's the correct settings (PPTP). I been trying to google it and no luck. Any help is appreciated. I've also added inbound rule and turned off my firewall from router

  • Hi,

    Did you use any client like Cisco client to configure VPN?

    If so, please make sure the version of this VPN client is compatible with Windows 8.1.

    Then, make sure you get your Network adapter driver is up to date from manufacturer’s website.

    Also, we need to also add an outboard rule for your VPN connection in Firewall.

    For further troubleshooting, please post back the screenshot of the error message and the event log here.
