Enabling PPTP Support on VPS (XEN and OpenVZ)

XEN VPS allows you to run PPTP/PPP protocol for Virtual Private Networking (VPN) out of the box, all you have to do is enable these modules (run them as root)

# modprobe ppp_async
# modprobe ppp_deflate
# lsmod | grep ppp
ppp_deflate             9793  2
zlib_deflate           21977  1 ppp_deflate
ppp_async              15169  1
crc_ccitt               6337  1 ppp_async
ppp_generic            30165  6 ppp_deflate,ppp_async
slhc                   10561  1 ppp_generic

#/sbin/modprobe ppp_mppe

#/usr/sbin/pppd


You should see gibberish in the standard output like

~�}#�!}!}!} }4}"}&} } } } }%}&)Q�}4}'}"}(}"p})

If there is an error message instead, something went wrong.


From that point, you can finish your setup as in a real hardware environment.

finally install pptp vpn ,please do:

#wget http://quickweb.co.nz/download/pptpd.sh
#sh pptpd.sh

(the script will automatically creates  VPN username and password that you can use to dial-up, see instruction bellow for creating VPN connection on Windows)

Create WINDOWS PPP Connection  (use the VPS IP for connection) see
