        How is this completed? There's no support for SSTP, DirectAccess nor PPTP.

        ms is a joke they release a phone that is missing such an important feature like VPN, i got stock want to use sstp with wp8 but no luck we better off with linux

        This doesn't even support SSL VPN natively
        You are asking to install an app and you don't even provide one
        please do a good job and implement VPN support correctly!!!!!!!!

        I'm sorry but this is feature incomplete. PPTP, L2TP/IPSEC are very widely used. This is unfinished and I hope an update is rolled out to add this soon.

        The WP 8.1 lacks of support for most popular VPN type (Ex Cisco) makes it close to useless for compny use.
        It seems to me this is the most important feature for professional use.

        Yes, PPTP is a MUST, and SSTP should be there as well. Unbelievable that IKEv2 is the only option.

        Yeah...but *IT'S THE WRONG TYPE OF VPN!!!!* Yes, I'm yelling here because it seems you take one step forward and then fall back on your @$$ backwards! Where 99.999% of the computing public uses PPTP or L2TP VPN, Microsoft in their infinite wisdom decided to use a version of VPN that almost *NOBODY* uses! But hey! In sticking with the Microsoft Only theme, the IPSEC VPN that is being implemented is only used on Windows machines...and then it's Windows 7 or 2008 or higher. So yeah...thanks for the VPN...*NOT*
        Home users and SoHo users use opensource routers or prosumer routers to route their traffic from their internal networks out to the internet. The majority of these routers (Monowall anybody) offer PPTP and L2TP., NONE of them use IPSEC SSL. NONE!
        Lame!
        Fuggeddit Microsoft...I'm sticking with an industry standard on my Android device. My Monowall router offers me the VPN choices I need. No point in even trying with you anymore!

        And DirectAccess ? There was a big push towards DA and big hate to VPN in 2008R2/2012 wave, so please be consistent!

        Thanks MS for being such jerks about adding a feature that should be standard in your OS. I cannot use WP8.1 on my phone, so you expect me to buy a new phone just to have the feature? I will buy a new phone, but with Andriod so that i can do what i need to.
        Talk about supporting your own Os and making it work.. sheeesh

        Microsoft: tell about WP8.1 VPN capability to corporate customers!
        My company forced employees to use Android and iOS devices by security reason
