PPTP Client allows you to connect to a PPTP server from a Linux box.




PPTP Client allows you to connect to a PPTP server from a Linux box. It sets up a PPTP connection, after which the PPP daemon establishes a PPP link over that PPTP call.

So you'd like to run a PPTP tunnel from your Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD or OpenBSD system? Need to connect to your employer's VPN? Just got ADSL? We suggest that you:
find documentation on our site that matches your distribution, or use our generic instructions,
download and install the software according to the instructions,
refer to our Diagnosis HOWTO if you experience problems,
join our mailing list and ask for help, and
contribute to the project by helping us to improve the documentation or software.
