How to connect PPTP VPN in centos


Hi Friends,

I need to configure Point to point tunnel protocol (PPTP) vpn in centos.

In Windows XP:

We can able to configure PPTP Vpn like this.

" 1. Open the Windows Control Panel.

2. Open the Network Connections item in Control Panel. A list of existing dial-up and LAN connections will appear.

3. Choose the 'Create a new connection' item from the left-hand side of the window. The Windows XP New Connection Wizard will appear on the screen.

4. First click Next to begin the wizard, then choose the 'Connect to the network at my workplace' item from the list and click Next.

5. On the Network Connection page of the wizard, choose the 'Virtual Private Network connection' option and click Next.

6. Enter a name for the new VPN connection in the 'Company Name' field and click Next. The name chosen need not match the name of an actual business.

7. Choose an option on the 'Public Network' screen and click Next. The default option, 'Automatically dial this initial connection' can be used if the VPN connection will always be initiated when the computer is not already connected to the Internet. Otherwise, choose the 'Do not dial the initial connection' option. This option requires that the public Internet connection be established first, before this new VPN connection will be initiated.

8. Enter the name or IP address of the VPN remote access server to connect to, and click Next. Company network administrators will provide this information.

9. Choose an option on the "Connection Availability" screen and click Next. The default option, 'My Use Only,' ensures that Windows will make this new connection available only to the currently logged on user. Otherwise, choose the 'Anyone's use' option.

10. Click Finish to complete the wizard. The new VPN connection information has been saved."


But in Centos how we can able to configure PPTP VPN for this we need to install any package. or in which file i need to configure for this, please guide me to solve this issue because last few days i am struggling because of this.
I got all the vpn access credentials from my office to work from home, but i cant able to join in my office network. because of this prob.

iam using : CentOS release 5.4 (Final) versing os

Thanks in Advance!!

Yes...it's also sad that you bumped your own thread after 24 hours (removing it from the zero-reply list), and couldn't seem to perform a basic Google search, which would have told you exactly what you needed. What did you do/try before posting here? Or do you just wait for people to look things up for you, and spoon feed you the answer?

One of those pages is a bit dated, but still relevant. And if you're using Gnome or KDE for your desktop, you've got other options too.
