I know PPTP isn't the greatest and OpenVPN is better, but I figured PPTP might be good in a pinch when traveling and I need to connect back easily with simple settings (No keys, etc). I currently use an online VPN service and on my iPhone it works perfect for my needs. I was able to get the PPTP Server working on my router, but I wanted to better understand what the best settings are for the most secure connection (Considering it has been cracked, but i'm talking in general). Broadcast Relay Mode Setting. Should this be set to both, or Lan to VPN Clients, or VPN Clients to Lan? I only want it right now to surf the web over my router's ip and connection, no actual computer sharing or anything. Is it more secure when turning on MPPE-128? Anything else that should be changed elsewhere or is that it? Are there any major risks in leaving my PPTP server running on my router? Would it make the router more susceptible to a possible hack attempt since that server is running, or should I be ok to leave PPTP running?
