How to configure cisco router as PPTP client?

Hi everybody!

Could you help me.

Is it possible to use cisco router as a PPTP (not L2TP) client?

And if it is, how to configure this feature?

You can only configure cisco router as PPTP server, not PPTP client.

Jennifer,

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.

Best regards,

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.

Hello,

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.

Best regards,
Peter
