Worth knowing

If you’re looking to set up a PPTP VPN server, there are a few things you’ll need to do. First, you’ll need to make sure that your router supports PPTP VPN passthrough. Most routers these days do, but it’s still worth checking.

Once you’ve confirmed that your router supports PPTP VPN passthrough, you’ll need to log into your router and forward port 1723 to the internal IP address of the computer that will be running the PPTP VPN server.

Next, you’ll need to install the Network Policy Server (NPS) role on the computer that will be running the PPTP VPN server. The NPS role can be installed via the Server Manager console in Windows Server 2012 or later.

Once the NPS role has been installed, you’ll need to configure it for use with PPTP VPNs. This can be done by opening the NPS console and navigating to Policies > Connection Request Policies. From here, you should create a new policy with conditions that allow access from devices using Microsoft Chap Protocol and specify your internal network as the remote address range. Once this policy has been created, go ahead and apply it to whatever servers or clients will be connecting to your PPTP VPN server. Finally open Ports 500 & 4500 UDP on Firewall

Now that everything is set up on the server side, we can move on to configuring our client computers

Worth knowing

Open your phone’s Settings app and tap Network & internet, then VPN. If you can’t find it, search for “VPN.” If you still can’t find it, get help from your device manufacturer. Tap the VPN you want to connect to and enter your username and password. Tap Connect. If you use a VPN app, the app will open.
