    Exclamation [REQ] Using HyperVM to make PPTP VPN Server

    Greeting everyone,

    I'm Using HyperVM right now to work on openvz env. and make Vps account on a dedi server

    Well I wonder if I could make a vpn server using it on the same system or even on a different system.. Can it be done? and if yes How To?!!

    Please share your knowledge about it

    I assume you mean can you setup a PPTP VPN inside an OpenVZ VPS? Of course you can, all you will need to do is enable Tun/Tap support for the VPS first.

    First Thanks for replay
    I googled for Tun/Tap Support Thing in HyperVM forum and I found this

    I followed instructions as followed
    vzctl set 170 --devices c:10:200:rw --save
    vzctl set 170 --capability net_adminn --save
    vzctl exec 170 mkdir -p /dev/net
    vzctl exec 170 mknod /dev/net/tun c 10 200
    vzctl exec 170 chmod 600 /dev/net/tun
    vzctl set 170 --iptables "iptable_filter iptable_mangle ipt_limit ipt_multiport ipt_tos ipt_TOS ipt_REJECT ipt_TCPMSS ipt_tcpmss ipt_ttl ipt_LOG ipt_length ip_conntrack ip_conntrack_ftp ip_conntrack_irc ipt_conntrack ipt_state ipt_helper iptable_nat ip_nat_ftp ip_nat_irc" --save
    vzctl restart 170
    And then I tried to make a vpn connection using my Windows 7 wizard using

    VM ip as host
    VM username as username
    VM password as password

    and I got this error message

    The remote connection was not made because the attempted VPN tunnels failed. The VPN server might be unreachable. If this connection is attempting to use an L2TP/IPsec tunnel, the security parameters required for IPsec negotiation might not be configured properly.
    Any suggestion?!!
