View Full Version : [all variants] PPTPD with Windows 7 client - not forwarding traffic

September 1st, 2010, 02:24 AM
Hi all,

I apologise if this question has been asked a million times before.

I have an Ubuntu 9.10 server with the PPTP VPN server daemon installed (pptpd). I can connect to this server successfully with a Windows 7 64-bit client - the client is assigned an ip address but the netmask is (not sure if this is normal).

I would like all internet traffic requested by the client to go through the server. Currently, however, whenever I connect to the server I am unable to access anything other than the server itself (requests to everything else time out). DNS appears to work. ipconfig on the client shows a default gateway of ''.

Every tutorial on PPTP that I've read seems to go about it in a completely different fashion, so I'm a bit confused :( Any insight would be appreciated.
