Access to Windows.Networking.Vpn for developing Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone application

    Question

  • We are porting application "VPN Shield" that provide VPN access to our client to Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone. With new update of SDK we get Networking VPN API but this is restricted only for teams who have "Microsoft Account Team Representative". How to get access to that API http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/xaml/windows.networking.vpn.aspx? What we need to have to assign such person for our team? Seems like without that API we cannot propose user the same experience as we developed for Mac OSX and Android. I already contacted Microsoft support and they advise ask here for assistance.

    Thanks!

  • Ok. Just to clarify if I do everything correctly:

    1 / I select category "Technical support for Windows Store and Windows Phone App Development"

    2 / I select subcategory "Networking"

    It asked me to pay 259$ per request. Could you please confirm I do everything correctly, paying 259$ is obligatory to get an access to that SDK and (if it is obligatory) we will get the access for that payment? Just would avoid situation we paid 259$ and we will not get an access.

  • Dear Matt,

    Sorry to disturb you again - until now there is no signals from your team. Would it be possible to get some clear signal? Probably you can advise alternative ways to contact your team? Thanks in advance!

  • Sorry about that. I asked our restricted access team about this and they did not follow up. The best thing you can do is open up the support case so we can get the right traction on the issue.

  • Well, that is possible scenario but need your advice - it cost 259$. We can afford it if finally access will be open. But if we will get answer that is impossible - it will be really pity pay it or we need a refund. Could you please point me to any materials / pages where this situation explained or advise the best way to process it?

  • I'm sorry, I don't have that information. I can't guarantee what the outcome will be for any of this.

  • Hello, I know this post is from 6 months ago, but I can't find anything anywhere on how to use Windows.Networking.Vpn . How can we have access to it?

  • It is not open to all developers. As was stated above you can open a technical support ticket in order to have your case investigated but this does not guarantee that you will get access to those APIs.

  • I know it is not open to all developers, but paying 259$ to have nothing is useless.
