Please use strong password in chap-secrets file to protect your server.

Server Setup

$ modprobe nf_conntrack_pptp nf_nat_pptp
$ cd ~/fig/pptpd/
$ docker-compose up -d
$ docker-compose logs -f

You need to config firewall:

  • To let PPTP tunnel maintenance traffic, allow port 1723/tcp.
  • To let PPTP tunneled data to pass through router, allow proto gre.
  • Set DEFAULT_FORWARD_POLICY=ACCEPT
  • Set net.ipv4.ip_forward=1 (sysctl)

Client Setup

Connect PPTP server using username:password with mschap-v2/mppe-128 encyption.
