Problem Creating PPTP Connection


Hello

I have problem with creating pptp connection on my centos vps.
VPS is under OpenVZ, so in customer panel i enabled TUN/TAP, PPP and IPSEC.

On my centos 6.5 vps i made changes based on this tutorial
http://www.zedt.eu/tech/linux/settin...os-openvz-vps/

and on windows 7 this
http://www.howtogeek.com/51237/setti...ver-on-debian/

And now, windows 7 is giving me 807 error.

Is this iptables rules are correct ?
Code:
iptables -A INPUT -i venet0 -p tcp --dport 1723 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -i venet0 -p gre -j ACCEPT
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -j SNAT --to-source [VPS's IP]
iptables -A FORWARD -i ppp0 -o venet0 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A FORWARD -i venet0 -o ppp0 -j ACCEPT
I have no ppp0 interface, and i have additionally vnet0:0 with external ip, and gre0 and gretap0 interfaces.

So ifconfig -a shows:
Code:
[root@vps ~]# ifconfig -a

So is vnet0 should be vnet0:0 ?
And what should be instead of ppp0 interface ?

Does anyone other than MS use pptp? Why not use openvpn which is easier to set up and not full of security holes?

I tried OpenVPN, but i could not start service (openvpn-as web ui)
Then i saw in hosting provider, ToS i read that "Public Proxies / VPN's" are banned.
