    PPTP on VM?

    Hello all,

    I have a bit of a strange request. I currently have Ubuntu 12.04 installed on my computer. I want to setup several VMs (Most likely debian) where each will be connected to a different PPTP VPN server. Is this possible? If so, how? Thank you!

    You might plan to use IPsec or OpenVPN instead. PPTP was never known for security and recently had a final nail in its coffin.

    BTW, if you use VirtualBox and configure networking as NAT, PPTP won't work as GRE is not supported when using NAT.

    Hey guys,

    This is meant for an automated script, ideally, I would be able to pull from a pool of IPs. This is why I selected PPTP. I know its outdated and unsecure but that isn't related to what I want. I'd just like to be able to configure it so each VM has its own connection and is able to switch IPs on the fly without interrupting the other. Thanks!
