    Setting up pptpd on VPS

    I am trying to setup a PPTP VPN server on my ubuntu minimal server 12.04 LTS hosted by linode

    There are many instructions on doing this online, and I have looked through nearly all of them. I was able to set this up successfully on my netbook on my home network.

    On my VPS server, I only have 1 available public IP address and 1 private IP address. I can't figure out how to allocate IP addresses for pptpd to use, since I can't use my provider's router.

    Is there some way I can create a virtual network interface and use it to assign IPs to my PPTP clients?

    This is from the syslog, maybe the issue isn't what I thought it was
