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
1) Click Add.
2) Select Connect to a workplace and click Next.
3) Enter the internet IP address of the router (for example: 218.18.
4) Enter the User name and Password you have set for the PPTP VPN server on your router, and click Connect.
1) Open System Preferences and click on Network.
2) Click the “+” sign to add a new connection.
3) Select VPN as the interface type.
4) Choose PPTP as the VPN Type.
5) Fill in the details of your PPTP server including theServer Address, Account Name, and Password.
6) Click Create and then Connect to start using your PPTP VPN!
-Allows remote users to securely connect to the network
-Encrypts data being sent over the connection
-Relatively easy to setup and configure
-May not be as secure as other VPN options
-Some routers do not support PPTP connections
ultimately, the decision of whether or not to enable PPTP VPN server comes down to a balance of security and convenience. If you need a quick and easy way to allow remote users to connect to your network, then PPTP may be the right choice. However, if security is your highest priority, you may want to consider another VPN option.
