    Hi, I'm curious how I would set this up for Windows Phone 8.1 mobile OS? .. I can create an IKEv2 VPN, however other than trying with a username+password (which fails to connect) it asks for a certificate and you can't run CertInstaller on their mobile OS. Is there a way to extract the certificate for me to copy over? certmgr.mcs perhaps?

    We do not support Windows Phone - so I cannot tell you if it will work properly.

    That was not the question pp Stephan. The question was "Is there a way to extract the certificate for me to copy over? certmgr.mcs perhaps?"
    Well, is there?

    You can download pre-shared IPSec keys here: https://www.perfect-privacy.com/member/download/ then follow the instructions here: https://www.windowscentral.com/how-configure-vpn-windows-10-mobile. Don't forget to to use the general hostname of a location like amsterdam.perfect-privacy.com (for the server group in Amsterdam) when you enter the server name. Connected instantly and seems to be runni9ng fine on Windows Phone 10. Good luck with 8.1.
    Final bit of the jigsaw for me - looks like I will stay with Perfect-Privacy!
