PPTP Client not working (or refuse to connect) / Shibby firmware

    Hello everyone!
    PPTP Client working fine in Shibby firmware, versions 102 and 109.
    Cisco (Linksys) E4200, E3000, E2000 were tested.
    But in firmware versions 138, 137, 136 (all multiwan), and 132, 130, 120, it refuses to connect.
    Button remains in "Start Now", and no route added to list.
    I use a lot this Client for practical purposes.
    Am I doing something wrong in new versions? Or is it just a bug?
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hello!
    No syslog trace...
    PPTP Server working well. It accepts connections normally. PPTP Online showing OK. Syslog show records of external connection.
    But PPTP Client still refuses to connect.
    Browsers used were Firefox v52, Chrome v57, IE v11.

    Version 138 cannot connect to version 109, but 109 can connect to 138.
    Version 109 can connect to version 109.
    Version 138 cannot connect to version 138.

    Update...
    Sorry for bothering...

    PPTP Client only start IF the option "Start with WAN" is selected.
    No matter wich destination IP, the button always says "Stop Now".

    Logs work fine, and it shows:

    Mar 23 23:37:58 cirros-00 daemon.info pptp[19648]: Plugin pptp.so loaded.
    Mar 23 23:37:58 cirros-00 daemon.info pptp[19648]: PPTP plugin version 0.8.5 compiled for pppd-2.4.5, linux-2.6.22.19

    Mar 23 23:38:03 cirros-00 daemon.err pptp[19649]: Call manager exited with error 1

    Then I change destination IP for the correct one. The I save options (with Start with WAN) and PPTP Client connect OK.

    Mar 23 23:48:29 cirros-00 daemon.info dnsmasq-dhcp[8961]: DHCPACK(br0) 10.X.X.Y MAC::: hostname

    Routing table looks good:

    10.X.X.Z * 255.255.255.255 0 ppp4

    But nor ping or any server can be accessed.

    So far...
    PPTP Client only starts when "Start with WAN" is saved, and it is impossible to reach any remote IP.

    Can anyone confirm these problems?
    Any suggestions?


    Sorry for my bad english.
    And thanks in advance again!

    Thanks for confirm this issue.
    For me, the only fix was downgrade to version 109... :(
