PPTP wan client connection to any PPTP server



  • Hi friends
    I am working on PPTP wan client connection to pfsense PPTP server and it does not connect and says : (it is regardless of which interface you use for wan connection)

    **      ppp: [opt1] COMPPROTO VJCOMP, 16 comp. channels, no comp-cid
    ppp: [opt1] IPCP: SendConfigAck #8
    ppp: [opt1] IPADDR 192.168.172.250

    ppp: [opt1] IPCP: state change Ack-Sent –> Closing
    ppp: [opt1] IPCP: SendTerminateReq #36

    I tested it with Windows PPTP Server and it is the same

    Any buddy knows why?
    Thank you

    That is not meant to connect to a remote PPTP VPN. It's meant to connect to certain special ISPs that require PPTP to login.



  • I tested it with pfsense or windows because it did not work with remote pptp server. I want to use it with ISP but it fails with kernel: Loop detected on pptp0.
    What is the technical problem. because I think if you support PPTP connection on WAN. Other things are layer 3 or above issues and the packet is delivered to PPTP server. Is it about mpd insuffisance or adding some configuration in GUI can solve it.

    I appreciate you if letting me know what is the underlying problem about.

    I really want to solve it and send a patch.

    Best regards
