    Installing pptpd vpn on Ubuntu 9.0.4

    Hey guys,

    So I'm trying to setup a vpn on my server. I've gone with pptpd (since openvpn is the most unfriendly application on the planet!)

    Now I've set it all up. Everything seems to be working flawlessly. I can connect to the vpn however I cannot access the internet. I can ping the servers ip but not much more then that.

    I've followed these guides:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=283067
    http://poptop.sourceforge.net/dox/di...rwarding.phtml (last step doesn't work for me :/)

    But for the life of me, I cannot figure out whats wrong. I only got the server yesterday so its a fairly vanilla OS.

    Can anyone shed any light on this ordeal?

    I Appreciate all help

    Hi Matsta,

    Did you setup the correct gateway?

    If you try to ping yahoo.co what do you get? timeout?
