It looks to be there in IE11 in my VM of W8.1
Not all of it. Can you make a connection default? Can you configure if, and if yes, when to dial a connection?

I was just saying that the GUI seemed to be there. If it does not work as it has in the past, then that is bad news for lots of people that must use that feature. I used to support a few rural users that use a wireless connection to their home. They used this auto-connect feature. When they opened IE and asked for a website, IE told the OS to establish a connection (and a VPN tunnel) to the ISP. I've also seen this in setups that I used to support in Europe. I don't remember - much less understand - all of the settings/options. I only knew about the ones that they had trouble with.

I don't have all of Virtual Box's networking stuff installed - so I'm not sure that failure on my part to make such a connection would prove much. Also, I don't have access to an account to test with... or I don't know how to test with accounts that I do have

If MS ripped out some integration between IE and their OS - then I blame various lawsuits for that.

w7 ult 64 and w7 hp 64 X 2 mint 64 8.1 64 10wtp 64

I've loaded the release preview on W7-32 and W7-64 but I don't know enough about IE10/11 to tell the difference. IE 11 RP seems to work ok on both systems.

I ran with the equivalent version of developer build with IE 10 when taking on both Customer and Release Previews for 8 yet passed or simply missed the full 10 when out since I keep another browser as the default. I believe IE 11 sees a fix for one program I kept running into with IE 9 and even with 8 where IE would simply lock up solid at times with the not responding messages even following a clean install of Windows.

There's no surprise that 11 will be out for 7 at all. I run into search results that show IE 11 for XP downloads? I have to caution about trusting any of those sites however since the system protection here will raise flags on some of them automatically as insecure sites and possibly something else. The download link posted at the top of the thread is direct from MS which now shows Release Preview at this time.
