Windows 10 – Error connecting attempted failed to L2TP VPN host

When connecting using a Windows 10 Home Edition I got this message :

The L2TP connection attempt failed because the security layer encountered a processing error during initial negotiations with the remote computer.

While a Windows Pro version did connect immediately ?

 

SOLUTION :

Make sure that these 2 service are started.

IKE and AuthIP IPsec Keying Modules” and “IPsec Policy Agent

The IKE and AuthIP IPsec Keying Modules service is required to support L2TP/IPsec and IKEv2 tunnels

Both services are disabled by default in the home ed.

Problem resolved.
