    Question VPN server in Ubuntu 11.04 32Bit (OpenVZ)

    Hi guys! I have a vps and i want to install a vpn service so i can connect from both my linux and windows computers.. so what i did..after a clean install:
    -sudo apt-get update
    -sudo apt-get install pptpd
    -sudo vi /etc/pptpd.conf and i removed the # from local and remote ip. i read that it doesnt matter what i will enter there because its my server's job to assing new IPs.
    -sudo vi /etc/ppp/chap-secrets and i added user1 pptpd pass1 *
    -sudo /etc/init.d/pptpd restart

    the output of netstat -an | grep LISTEN is:
    tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:587 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:80 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN

    The end of PPTP

    Not really a solution but you may want to reconsider trying to use PPTP and choose IPSec instead. PPTP is not really known for security and recent events have shown that to be an unfixable condition:
