Windows 8 store app and VPN


This time i will talk some about VPN and specifically about using a VPN connection from a Windows 8 store app.

When we were making a Windows 8 app for a company they needed the app to access some thing located on their private network, to solve this they were only going to use the app on Windows 8 Pro tablets and use a VPN connection. This didn’t seem to be any big problem in the start but after a while i realized that Windows 8 apps couldn’t use VPN connections normally. To solve this I had to edit a key in the registry for the VPN provider, this solution only works for this VPN provider and can be found here, if you are going to work with some other provider you will need to find a similar solution for that provider.
