In chap-secrets file I have defined two username/password combinations.

I login using first username and it works (it is connected from Windows 7). However as soon as I login from another device (Android 4.2) using the second username, the first connection stops working (stops receiving data, but connection appears to be alive). If I logout the second connection, the first connection does not return to work.

This is in pptpd.conf:


Other scripts are not changed. What am I doing wrong?

Because of the way PPTP works, two clients behind the a NAT may not connect to the same PPTP server simultaneously.
