Error 691: The remote connection was denied


i m trying to make VPN  connection through windows 8 surface device to my winserver 2003 but it gives me error



Error 691: The remote connection was denied because the user name and password combination you provided is not recognized, or the selected authentication protocol is not permitted on the remote access server




Actually Microsoft has changed the protocols on windows 8. Windows server 2003 does not understand the new protocol so it will reject the connection. There is a work around where you can lower the security of windows 8 so that it can connect VPN to a windows 2003 server.
