Hello.

 

Can anybody share their experience with setting it up and using Always On VPN with Windows 10 Professional?  I have it set up and working on a trial server and test workstation but can't work out if I need an Enterprise license for it to actually be always on (I want it to connect when Windows starts, not when the user logs on and manually connects).  Is this possible?

 

Thanks in advance.

Always On VPN is supported in Pro, Enterprise, and other Windows 10 SKUs for user tunnel. The device tunnel requires Windows 10 Enterprise or Education version 1809 or later.
