    PPTP-support was finally added in but unfortunately is not working properly:

    configure any unsername and password on the router and configure windows client for the same - works without "encryption required" on windows side...

    if you simply leave all settings empty in the windows pptp-client, connections can still successfully be made... :))

    if you select "encryption required" in windows client, no connection can be made.

    Any ideas?

    Wow they added PPTP VPN? :shock: One of their higher up regional reps told me it was never going to be added, not enough room in the lesser memory of the 042. Well..good to see a handy feature like that added. I didn't see it on the version changelog.

    NO credentials needed

    ...if PPTP-Server is activated/ no encryption is made?
    are the guys crazy?

    can't see any .conf files via telnet where something like "require ms-chap" or something similar is in...
    the password-files simply seem not to be used...
