VPN - Error 741 The local computer does not support the required encryption type

If you see this error

Error 741 - The local computer does not support the required encryption type

Do the following

1. Go to Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connection

2. Locate your VPN adaptor and right click properties. Go to security tab


Then, you can try the following fixes

The error may due to

1. Encryption not strong enough

At Data encryption, changes to Maximum strength encryption

2. Wrong type of VPN

At Type of VPN, do not use Automatic. Change to a specific VPN type, for example, Point to Point Tunneling Protocol

3. Wrong Authentication

At Authentication, use the specific authentication method supply by your VPN administrator

4. VPN server is not using encryption at all

This is an irony but it does happens. To fix it:

1. At Data encryption, change to either No encryption allowed or Optional encryption

2. At Authentication, Check Unencrypted Password
