    I've STF, and Googled, but still can't find a working syntax for the CHAP-Secret Field.
    Has anbody got a working syntax they wish to share ?

    Thanks Zgamer,
    I've Already tried this, but my connection hangs on verifying username and password.
    Do you use the PPTP Server ? What Firmware are you using ?

    It's working for me.

    OS: Windows XP SP2
    Firmware: Alchemy 1.0

    Be sure, that loopback is disabled. In the PPTP server option on your router specify the private IP of your router (usually as server IP. Enter an unused IP(s) from the same IP range in the Client IP(s) field. for example And enter the chap secret as follows
    test * test *
    There has to be spaces between the username/password and the asterisks!

    It might also be a good idea to disable any software firewall running on your pc for the first try.

    I've been trying to set it up with dd-wrt v22 pr5(5/11 build) but have been getting the same problem. I have my settings setup correctly on it as it matches another one which works however when trying it on mine I've been having some issues getting it to work where it will hang on the verifying.

    Do you use the Private IP of the router as the PPTP server address or your actual WAN IP (e.g. DSL IP???)

    Update, I got port forwarding and VPN working. End up flashing with a newer build(5/17/05) and doing a full reset. VPN with compression enabled pegs the cpu out on the linksys but if compression is disabled cpu usage hovers around 50%. Make sure PPTP forwarding is disabled tho.
