PPTP (point-to-point tunneling protocol) is one of the most common virtual private network (VPN) protocols allowing remote users to securely access company networks.

Automatically establishing a connection during the boot procedure

In order to set up a client which is fully configured to automatically establish a connection, you may need to dial up first.

  1. Enable this option before the desktop is launched.

    The client connects to the host.

  2. Click on Add to set up new connections.
  3. Configure the necessary settings in order to dial up the RAS server on the desired remote station.
  4. Select the network device and specify whether a dial-up connection is to be used.
  5. Specify on the Options tab the name service and the IP configuration for the PPTP connection.

    These data will normally be transferred from the remote station's RAS server. This means that both DNS and IP address will be set to automatic by default.

You can set up additional network routes on the next three setup pages (Routing).
