Hi all,

I already install pptpd module working great.

My questions is how can I see who's currently online via pptp.>

a pptp connection is considered a remote login and it should appear as well, the last time i ran a pptpd server i could see the users logged in. I can even see l2tpd users on my ipsec/l2tpd vpn

Okay just check you need the logwtmp option in your pptpd config if you are to use the last command.
