   (0 reviews)


Setup PPTP Server in MikroTik  CHR 

Basic Steps:

  • Create or change a ppp profile 
  • Create user /ppp secret 
  • Attach a specific remote address for each user and show the route for their LAN
  • Enable the server and set the appropriate profile


  • Create an empty bridge and attach a local address to it.







Install and setup User-Manager:

  • Install the user-manager package if it is not already installed.
  • You may need to upgrade your RouterOS Software on CHR. 
  • Configure the user-manager for your users/clients and billing scheme
  • Add remote site routers to the user-manager with the IP address specified in their PPP secret




Install and setup dude server:

  • Install dude server
  • Configure Dude to accept remote connection
  • Connect with Dude from any client using the public Assigned IP address from AWS.
  • Add devices to dude using the PPTP assigned addresses and the remote LAN addresses




Setup Remote Site Router:

  • Setup Connection to internet on remote site router
  • Setup hotspot and PPPoE as required
  • Configure PPTP — client
  • Setup radius client to connect to server over PPTP link IP address
  • Configure Hotspot/PPPoE to use-radius. Set interim update.



Pptp - Clients connect:






Install Dude client locally:






Access the corporate file server from another remote site:

  • Add a route to the remote site router for the corporate LAN via the pptp tunnel
  • Also add a route to the corporate office router for the remote Site LAN via the pptp tunnel
  • If you do not have access to the remote site LAN, you can simply masquerade everything going out through the pptp-client interface of the remote site router, hence the route from the corporate router will not be required
