While 4 years late, I respectfully disagree. It is possible to configure PPTP client functionality on Cisco routers - Cisco just went somewhat far to hide that functionality.
Thanks for the input and great detailed explanation. I also agree with your conclusion that PPTP is not quite relevant anymore in today's world, especially in site-to-site tunneling.
@Peter Paluch -
Dear Peter, your shared link is having configuration of PPTP windows 2000 client terminating to PPTP server in cisco router.
Its not PPTP client in cisco router.
I am also looking for configuration of PPTP client in cisco router.
In the thread I have linked, there is an example for both PPTP Server and Client functionality on a Cisco router. However, I am reposting the PPTP client example here for your convenience.
service internal ! vpdn enable ! vpdn-group PPTP_CLIENT request-dialin protocol pptp pool-member 1 initiate-to ip 10.255.255.5 ! interface Dialer0 ip address negotiated encapsulation ppp dialer pool 1 dialer string 1234 dialer persistent dialer vpdn
For the explanation of the individual commands in this example, please refer to the link in my previous reply - it is in the second half of the post.
