Setup a PPTP VPN in OpenVZ

1. Enable PPP module in SolusVM (Manage > Controls > Settings > "Enable PPP")

2. Re-install with our Debian 6 w/pptpd template in SolusVM (Manage > Controls > General > "Re-install")

3. Change localip in /etc/pptpd.conf to your VPS IP address

4. Setup username and password in /etc/ppp/chap-secrets

5. Run iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -j SNAT --to-source YOURVPSIP

6. Run iptables-save

7. Run service pptpd restart

8. Run sh /root/

And you're all set. Login to you server using your VPS's IP address and credentials. If you have any issues try the following troubleshooting steps:

Run the following command: cat /dev/ppp
If it returns "cat: /dev/ppp: No such device or address" then your PPP module is set correctly, if not, you need to enable it in SolusVM (or disable and re-enable it).

Restart your VPS in SolusVM. If this allows you to connect but you do not have internet access, you'll need to re-run the iptables commands above (steps 5 and 6).

If you want to install PPTP from scratch, we recommend this guide:
