How to configure the endpoint devices

Note: The steps in this section must be performed by the users.

For users to be able to access the UTM through PPTP VPN, they must configure their client device. For that, they must access the UTM User Portal with a browser from their remote client. Then, they can view installation instructions. After that, they can configure the VPN connection in Windows.
