How can I setup a PPtP server behind this router?
Posted by Anonymous on
You?ll need to setup Port Forwarding to set up a PPtP tunnel behind a Linksys router. Please follow these instructions to setup the router to forwarding incoming PPtP traffic to your PPtP server: Getting Started 1. You must set a static IP address on the server. If you're unsure of how to do this please go to our Answer ID 534 for information on setting a static IP address in Windows. 2. Once the static IP address has been assigned please go to your desktop and double click on Internet Explorer (Located on the Start Menu in Windows XP) 3. Once "Internet Explorer" opens, please type http://192.168.1.1into the "Address Bar" and click GO 4. The "Enter Network Password" window will appear. Skip user name and type admin (admin is the default password) as the password, and click OK. 5. This will bring up the routers "Setup" section. Look under "Domain Name" and check what version of the firmware you're using. 6. You will need to click on the Advanced tab to the very right. Once the "Advanced" tab comes up please go to the Forwarding tab.
