    Stuck Configuring a persistent PPTP client in Ubuntu Server

    I'm trying to configure a persistent PPTP interface in Ubuntu server and don't seem to be able to use the interface. The client is connecting to the server and getting an ipaddress but if I try to ping using the interface it fails, similarly, trying to curl using the interface doesn't work. Any ideas?

    ifconfig output:
    Code:
    $ ifconfig
