pptpd VPN on OpenVZ

I just purchased a cheap VPS hosting plan. I have the SSH Access but not the OpenVZ Node access (cannot modprobe).
I am trying to set up a PPTP VPN using pptpd.
And when I connect to the PPTP VPN through Windows I get error 619.

Feeling slow

Perhaps I am not very sharp right now (about 3 hours past my normal bedtime and workign three things at once), but
I have a hard time seeing any good reason to want to terminate a VPN and a managed OpenVZ guest. What are you really trying to accomplish?

Thanks for the reply.
I fixed the problem.
I installed openvpn and removed all the pptpd VPN installation files.
All I needed was the modprobe access command to access the OpenVZ node.
The VPS provider did this part for me by the way.
