I am new to puppy Linux and is currently running 5.25 and can't get PPTP VPN connection going.

I find the post and follow the instruction at http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=42140#42140 but doesn't seem to work.

After I start gttpt at step 4 I got "PPTP client (31955) exited with 0" and wen I issues an "ip addr" I do see

16: ppp0: <POINTOPOINT,MULTICAST,NOARP> mtu 1500 qdisc noop qlen 3

So I assume the ppp connection is somewhat started.

But when I follow step 5 "route add -net ....." I got an network is unreachable error.

Can someone please help?

Thanks in advance

Puppy is running inside virtualbox and turn out Vobx can't forware GRE frame. So pptp will never work in NAT mode. I don't want the VM to use bridge network due to security concern. Looking into openVPN now

After you get exited with 0 Just type it in a consolle:

ip route add default dev ppp0

your ip wil be tunnelled via your PPTP connection
