Getting Linux PPTP-Client working with MS VPN server

Getting Linux PPTP-Client working with MS VPN server

I get a connection, but no IP and it hangs up.

If you don't mind giving me some clues.....  I followed online hints
on the secrets file and everything else.

I am using Mandrake 8.1 (latest) and pppd v 2.4.0, pptp-client 1.0.3.

Here is some output from my ppp log:

Nov  2 01:53:42 tomc-inspiron pptp[3892]:
log[pptp_dispatch_ctrl_packet:pptp_ctrl.c:548]: Client connectio
n established.

Nov  2 01:58:42 tomc-inspiron pppd[3895]: Connection terminated.
Nov  2 01:58:43 tomc-inspiron pppd[3895]: Exit.


I notice that even though this thing causes a ppp0 connection to come
up, there is never an IP address assigned to this interface, and it
eventually hangs up.

Does anyone know how to get a PPTP cleint working with Linux??




1. Linux as PPTP Server for MS PPTP Clients?

We are evaluating Linux to supplement/replace our NT servers. At present
we use Microsoft PPTP to allow remote NT clients to access our office
network via our Internet connection.  My question is: Is there a
combination of NT client software and Linux server software to allow
VPN/PPTP type connections? In my search of Linux HOW-TOs, etc. I have
come across Linux-to-Linux VPN connections and even a Linux client for
MS PPTP ( but no
Linux PPTP servers for MS clients. Ideally we would like a Linux daemon
that would work with the standard NT client.

Any suggested solutions?
