Connect VPN using SSTP on Windows 11

Today I’ll show you how to connect to a VPN network using the SSTP protocol. Secure Socket Tunneling Protocol is very secure and stable, but only works on Windows computers. It can avoid firewalls because it runs over port 443 (SSL) which is rarely blocked because it’s used by all web browsers for secure browsing.
