PPTP Client

The following example demonstrates how to set up a PPTP client with username “MT-User”, password “StrongPass” and server

[admin@MikroTik] > interface pptp-client add connect-to= disabled=no name=pptp-out1 password=StrongPass user=MT-User[admin@MikroTik] > interface pptp-client printFlags: X - disabled; R - running 0  R name="pptp-out1" max-mtu=1450 max-mru=1450 mrru=disabled connect-to= user="MT-User"      password="StrongPass" profile=default-encryption keepalive-timeout=60 add-default-route=no      dial-on-demand=no allow=pap,chap,mschap1,mschap2

PPTP Server

On the other side we simply enable the PPTP server and create a PPP secret for a particular user:

[admin@MikroTik] >  interface pptp-server server set enabled=yes
[admin@MikroTik] >  ppp secret add local-address= name=MT-User password=StrongPass profile=default-encryption remote-address= service=pptp
[admin@MikroTik] >  interface pptp-server printFlags: D - dynamic; R - runningColumns: NAME, USER, MTU, CLIENT-ADDRESS, UPTIME, ENCODING#      NAME            USER     MTU  CLIENT-ADDRESS  UPTIM  ENCODING        0  DR  <pptp-MT-User>  MT-User  1450   44m8s  MPPE128 stateless
