HOW TO: Setup a PPTP VPN in OpenVZ

  1. Re-install you OS with our Debian 7 32bit PPTPD template in Wyvern
  2. Change localip in /etc/pptpd.conf to your VPS IP address (2nd to last line)
  3. Setup usernames and passwords in /etc/ppp/chap-secrets
  4. Run service pptpd restart
  5. 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.

Restart your VPS in Wyvern. If this allows you to connect but you do not have internet access, you'll need to re-run the script (step 5).
