Hmmm DirectAccess is only available in Enterprise, so maybe I'm onto something...

Ohhh crap! I'm outa ideas then!

 

Aha! You're not on Anniversary update...... maybe that is the key? I'm on Version 1607 (OS Build 14393.693)

This is how I am currently doing it:

  • Change dial up settings
  • Set up a new connection
  • Connect to a workplace
  • Use My internet connection
  • Enter the IP, click on Allow other users to use this connection
  • Click Create

I note that there is that icon by it, which implies that it needs administration privileges, though I cannot see how to elevate when doing the new connection wizard.

This view shows the properties and the extra tab. As can be seen the 'Allows Users.. is not checked, and when I check it I get an error.

ok, so you have the sharing as you must have Internet Connection Sharing enabled thats why you see it and i dont. that should not interfere with the vpn though, it should be unchecked.

 

other than that, i dont see what is wrong. you should see the icon on the login screen and you should be able to connect if it works within windows when logged in.

I have an ISO of the pre-Anniversary, so I'll load that up a bit later and see if it is specifically related to the Anniversary update...

I installed both Windows 10 Pro Version 1511 & Enterprise 1607 in a VM and they both are the same..  that sharing tab is there by default, and neither of them have the VPN showing from the lock screen. Have you got CTRL-ALT-DEL enabled? I did read that this has to be enabled for the VPN to then show up on the lock screen - but I don't see why.....

yeah, its enabled, i believe that when you join a domain, its automatic, if its not, the guys have enabled it.

OK I will give that a whirl. All the client workstation/laptops I have seen just have the normal lockscreen, and I did read somewhere that you need to enable the CTRL-ALT-DEL, but from what I saw that just took you back to the locks screen anyway?

      It's that time of year again (plus or minus a few months) for Windows owners to pour out a suitable beverage, switch on the TV (say to a cricket match in Summer) and multiplex those activities with updating Windows on one's devices.
      This time round I reverted to an 'in place' upgrade using the Upgrade now button at https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10, wondering whether my shared folder setup would be destroyed as it had been in previous upgrades … but no, in general all went smoothly for:
      HP Microserver N36L
      HP Microserver N54L
      HP Microserver Gen8 x 2
      These are pure file servers running W10 Professional.
      The only point to note is the continued absence of the CPU usage trace on the Gen8 Task Manager graph.

      Microsoft is changing the update policy for windows 10  per this article on thurrotts website
       
       https://www.thurrott.com/windows/windows-10/204359/microsoft-makes-major-changes-to-windows-10-updating
       
      a couple of years ago, I stopped using a windows 10 homeserver because the update cycles kept breaking things
       
      this new announcement could cause some reconsideration of this.  
       
      Don't think I am going to replace my Qnap nas anytime soon -its been rock solid
      but if I where building a new server, would consider it.
       
      wouldn't be hard to set up machine with a lot more capability than most NAS's without laying out 400 bucks for a windows server license
       
      and you can use Drivepool, which I miss from my W10 server

      Greetings!
       
      I've looked up a lot of topics about this, but i've always find the half of the answers to my questions. I guess it's an unusual situation this time...
       
      I would like to install windows 10 to my server in AHCI mode but without intelligent provisioning (it's died while upgrading it so there is no option to use it, that's another topic).
      I'm able to boot the windows installer from iLO remote console but it cannot find the hdd driver. I've tried with few drivers, but no luck.
      When the raid controller is the selected controller (the raid would be perfect too), the installer doesn't boot up.
       
       
      Parameters/facts:
      -AHCI mode on( the installer is boots up in this mode only)
      - No intelligent provisioning
      -HP smart array won't load either
      -2 hdd
       
      Questions:
      -This concept is possible?
      -If yes, the raid is possible without IP and HP smart array?
      -Is this will be easier with VMware esxi?
       
      Thanks in advance!

      the selection and quality of the windows 10 store apps   has taken a turn for the better in the last few months
       
      Software publishers have started to load in their win32 apps  in the Store
       
      The big one is  Itunes  of course.    I dont use Itunes per se but a program I use ( mediamonkey)  requires it to be installed to sync to Ipods and Iphones
       
      The big advantage of loading in Itunes this way  is that it leaves behind all the other crud  ( apple updater, Bonjour etc) and just does Itunes
       
      But there are several others that I have used and can recommend.  In some cases the author asks for a small fee for the program via the store.  but you can install on any  of devices hooked into your account and updates are handled thru the MS update process
       
      Paint.net  a solid paint/photoshop type program.  Very good program that I have used for many years.    This is the program that should have replaced MS Paint, rather than the POS  Paint 3D
       
      Libre Office   full featured office suite -  fork of the openoffice project  solid program  more like MS Office than the google office suite.  One of my daughters went to school using this and wrote her PHD thesis with it.  
       
      Irfranview  Lightweight handy image viewer/editor.     I have used this program for over 20 years !!!!     If I need to just crop or lighten an image to paste into another document,  this is what I use.   
       
      Inkscape   open source Vector drawing program -    similar to Adobe Illustrator  and visio     dont use this program often  but  since visio isnt part of the standard office 365 package,  a good program to have loaded up 
       
      Autodesk CAD Mobile    Dont confuse this for a full featured CAD program , but for viewing and marking DWG files or creating simple CAD profiles,  this free program works fine
       
      Please feel free to pass along other useful items you found in the windows store

      After 2 disk failures … and the W10 April update … and the first patch Tuesday …
      … I've been spending a lot of time moving data and testing this past 2 weeks.
       
      I prompted the so called '1803 feature update' immediately it was available via Windows Update, having prepared via Insider test builds.
      The process went through slowly but steadily on all my machine types … which you will see from my signature are all pretty old and low powered devices.
      There was a vestigial File Explorer item which once closed left everything intact bar the usual window rearrangement/prompts $MSFT likes to make to File Explorer and Edge.
      Oh and the usual additional forcing tactics e.g. you see a yellow warning flag on the defender security notification icon if you are logged on to a local account rather than a Microsoft email account. 
       
      Only 1 bug to speak of - I have not experienced the problems others have been reporting in the press.
      The HOMEGROUP feature has been removed from this release with a likely side effect: other network machines and their shared file systems no longer appear under Network Places.
      They are accessible but one has to type the machine name in the File Explorer address bar e.g. \\HPMICROSERVER5 to start any action.
      Since I have been moving lots of files around I have also noticed that the network is not as stable as before: a remote shared area can be accessible one minute but not the next.
       
      No showstoppers for me (famous last words).
