Configure Virtual Private Network
What is Virtual Private Network? What are the ways to configure it?
A virtual private network is common now-a-days. It is used to connect the business systems to the organization’s network. The main use of this network is the availability of network connection with less cost. Tunneling protocols are used by this network. Proper encryption and decryption at the sending and receiving end are also provided by this VPN. The network addresses used to send and receive the data are also encrypted in this type of network connection. Tunnels are used to send data over the network and none of the data which are not encrypted passes through these tunnels. A virtual network is a private network and this uses the public network to transmit data between users.

Tips to configure
You can configure a Virtual Private Network with the help of just two simple steps; one is creating a server and the next is the configuration of client. To start this, you need to open the 'Network Connection' wizard from the Control Panel. You would see the 'Set up an advanced connection' option in the Network connection wizard and from there you need to select 'Accept incoming connections'. The option 'Allow virtual private connection' that appears in the next window helps you to create the virtual private connection. You can add the users that you want to connect to and if you need any help, you can search the Connected Windows option. Some software utilities are also there to create the virtual private connection.
Error messages due to various reasons are the main issue that may come while configuring the Virtual Private Network connection. Certificate errors are one example of these types of errors while configuring the Virtual Private Network. If the connection with the server is not completed successfully, then you will get Error 645. If you are using cable modems, then also you will receive various errors.
The main point that you need to check is the proper connection with the server. If this is completed, then you can avoid the error 645. You should also verify the authentication if you get any error message related to this. Also, an unsecured password will create issues and you need to check the settings related to the password also. If there is any hardware issue, then you need to fix that. It is better to read that hardware device to the system once again.
