pptpd server and pptp client on the same box - is this possible?

I have a linux box with working pptpd server without encryption. Now this box must connect to another vpn server, therefore I tried to set up a VPN connection.
After pptp setup I start pppd and the console in which I start it locks up, and I can't recover the console(say console #1) at all.
Some records in the ppp debug file that may be related:
tcflush failed: Bad file decriptor
tcsetattr: Invalid argument (line 1001)

The software i use:
pppd 2.4.3 with mppe/mppc patch
pptp 1.6
pptpd 1.2.3

Well that's it.
