How do I set up a VPN through my Windstream Internet Service

VPN, or Virtual Private Networking, is a feature already built into most PCs that lets you tunnel through the Internet to a home or office network from a remote location. This feature currently uses either PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol) or L2TP (Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol) in order to establish a connection.

Windstream does not currently block any ports for our Internet customers. Unless you have a firewall or a router installed, you should not need to make any changes to your system.

In some cases, it may be necessary to provide different DNS servers on your network adapter setup in order for your VPN connection to work correctly. You would need to supply the following DNS servers on your Local Area Connection settings:

  • Primary DNS: 166.102.165.32
  • Alternate DNS: 207.91.5.32
