Meraki VPN Client Setup Instructions
No need to worry about user configuration, or shared secrets, or server credentials. I only have Windows Server unfortunately and last time I looked into it, I ran into some trouble and didn't get it to work correctly. The most successful MSPs rely on metrics — known as key performance indicators KPIs — for making informed decisions that help their businesses thrive, rather than just survive. It's more than this solution. If I had to do it, I would create a power shell script that I would push out via GPO to all of the devices that need it.

Welcome to Reddit,


I have this deployed on all of our windows 10 machines, no issues. I used the same setup as in windows 8. I have connected this as well. I've found that, after the upgrade, the existing connections that were there previously do not connect. I had to create a new one and then it worked just fine. Also doesn't hurt to triple check your hostname and shared secret I was getting this error at one point but i believed it was related to error in my environment. Anyone run into the issue where you can connect to the VPN and send packets but not receive packets?
