Remarks

This property is read/write. Its default value is False (VARIANT_FALSE in C++).

EAP can be used to provide an added layer of security to Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) and Layer Two Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) VPN connections. EAP enables this functionality through certification authority (CA) and smart card technologies, which provide mutual authentication of the client and the server. To use EAP with a VPN, the server must be configured to accept EAP authentication as a valid authentication method and it must have a user certificate (X.509). The client must be configured to use EAP, and either have a smart card (with a smart card certificate installed) or a user certificate.

EAP cannot be enabled together with any of the other authentication protocols.
