Help in setting up L2PT client on iPad 4 running iOS 9.3.4

Can anyone help me in setting up my VPN client on my iPad. I THINK I have set the Windows Softether Server up correctly but I am having problems with the iOS VPN setup up.

Can anyone clarify exactly what information I need to put into the following iOS VPN fields. I have selected the L2PT option

1) Description. I presume this can be anything meaningful

2) Server. Is this either the IP address or ddns host name?

3) Account ?

4) Password. I presume this is the password I set up when I created the user account on the server

5) Secret?

I'm sorry these questions may appear very basic but with so many variables in play I seem to be going around in circles. I must confess Networking is a little above my pay grade!

I'm sure I have seen a previous post a few weeks ago but I have not been able to find it so any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Thanks, Winston.

Hello Winston,

Please note the excellent writeup concerning IOS L2TP by Paul W9AC toward the bottom of this link on the Community.   It helped me and I am sure it will answer your questions.

Thanks Larry, thanks Paul.

The fog has miracularly cleared. Just the information I needed. I can now see where I went wrong and will try it again when I get bck home later in the day

As others have stated before, "This Forum Rocks"

Thanks again, Winston
