VPN or Virtual Private Network allows you to create a secure connection over Internet. You can access geo-blocked websites, shield your browsing logs and many more things. But for this, most of us uses some Third-Party VPNs to get secured over the internet. But guess what? Windows users can now create VPN servers as Windows has built-in ability to function as VPN server. However, this function is hidden but you can get access to it with some simple steps.

You can create VPN servers to play LAN games with your fellas, or even for doing secure web browsing on public Wi-Fi connections. The method remains almost same for Windows 7 and Windows 8.

Creating VPN Server on Windows 8

Press Windows key or directly go to apps and type ncpa.cpl and hit enter.

Network Connections window will pop up. Press Alt and click on File ->New Incoming Connection.

You can now select any user account to connect remotely. However, we suggest that you must create a new limited account rather than using your primary account. You can do that by clicking on “Add Someone”

Select “Through the Internet “option to connect over the Internet. You may also use dial-up modem if you have dial-up hardware.

You can even select the option to share the things you want. If you don’t want to share the Files, Uncheck the File and Printer sharing option.

While this is a pretty intersecting feature, but it also has some limitations.You have to expose Windows and a port for the PPTP (Point-to-Point tunneling Protocol) VPN servers directly to the internet. So, for more security purpose, you must use strong password rather than using simple one.
