Can you tell me what information should be used in windows 10 vpn setup for F-Secure?
Could you please elaborate on your question so that we can assist you further? Have you installed Freedome in your Windows 10 computer? You may find more information about the product in here.
This is the questions asked by VPN setup under 'Settings', 'VPN', 'add VPN':
VPN Provider (only option seems to be windows (built-in))
Server name or address
VPN Type: Auotmatic
Point To Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP)
L2TP/IPsec with certificate
L2TP/IPsec with pre-sdhared key
Secure Socket Tunneling Protocol (SSTP)
Type of sign-in info: user name and password
User Name: (optional)
Freedome can be installed directly on your Windows 10 as per this article. Please have a look.
Setting up a VPN connection with Windows 10 requires you having the proper credentials to access a server. Be sure you have these before you continue. You may have to coordinate with your system administrator.Once you have all the required information, here is how you can set up a VPN connection in your Windows 10 computer:
As per your points above, it is seen that you are trying to configure VPN client using PC settings (VPN Provider is seen as Microsoft and not F-Secure). Freedome does not need ant configuration to be done in Windows 10 as seen here. You can check the information from the links I shared above about Freedome. You just have to download and install the Freedome application and start your VPN connection.
I tried as written her and thid did not work. It seems not to be able to reach the Server name you supplied me with. My setup looks like the below:
Connecvtion name: test
Server name or address: 126.96.36.199
type of sign-in info: user name and password
user name: my freedom email address
password: my freedom password
What am I not doing?

I fotgot to add. The message I am getting is:
The remote connection was not made because the attempted VPN tunnels failed. The VPN server might be unreachable. If this connection is attempting to use an L2TP/Ipsec tunnel, the security parameters required for IPsec negotiation might not be configured property.
What tunnel should be used?
I left this option on: Automatic
This has been marked as 'resolved'. It is not resolved. I have commented here. I already have installed Freedome and a subscription. My problem is setting up the VPN thru windows 10. I know I do not have to. This is the way I would like to do this.
I tried the below and it did not work. It seems not to be able to reach the Server name supplied to me by freeedome support. My setup looks like the below:

What should I do next?
I am not sure, but the address I am looking for may look something like this: ems05.your-freedom.de
Based on your last comment which mentions 'your-freedom.de', this seems to be a different product than 'F-Secure Freedome'. If the product you are referring to here is 'Your-Freedom'; then, it is not from F-Secure. With F-Secure Freedome, you don’t need to worry about those manual configurations as our product is designed to be simple and easy to use. It will do all the configurations necessary automatically for you.
Do you have F-secure client security running? By default this will block your VPN connection. You need to add a rule in your F-secure settings that will allow the VPN tunnel to be set up.
So in F-secure go to Network connections - Firewall - Rules - Add.
There you should follow some simple straight forward steps.
In the service tab you need to add a GRE-tunnel and specify it to be open in both directions.
