I want to setup a PPTP vpn server on linux so that I can connect to and use the internet of the VPN on both Windows 7 and Mac OS X. I know how to create an SSH tunnel, but I would like to learn about VPN's.
The reason behind choosing PPTP is that I've heard it's relatively easy to setup but I've not had much luck in configuring.
The guides that I have been following mention about modifying
localip <IP> remoteip <IP>
However I don't understand the IP addresses that I should be putting in these?
The VPS that I currently has three network adaptors.
The last two I believe have the IP addresses that I have been allocated. so I am guessing in
localip I should stick one of these... but as for
remoteip I am unsure.
After following such guides adding the two ip addresses I have been allocated and restarting
I recieve this in Windows 7
Do I need to forward any ports on my router? or make any changes to my IPTABLES?
