In Windows 7 you an create VPN connections for PPTP, L2TP or SSTP. To delete a connection you can not just right click and press delete. But it’s still very simple, but a lot of people can’t find where you can remove VPN connections, because it is a kind of hidden ;-).
- First open Network and Sharing Center
- Click Change Adpater Settings on the left side
- Now you can see all connections and you can remove the VPN connection
I have followed the instructions for deleting a vpn connection. the connection is shown in Network connections/Change adapter settings, but nothing happens when I right click on it and select delete, and confirm.
Further to this, when I select Rename and enter a new name, I get an error message “Cannot rename this connection. Element not found”.
And also, when I select Prperties there is another message “An unexpected error occurred”.
Quickest way to get to this window is running “ncpa.cpl” from the start menu search box.
THANK SO MUCH,VERY USEFUL
