Correct procedure to do pptp VPN on Zentyal 5
« on: March 14, 2017, 10:54:47 pm »
I am just starting out with Zentyal and would like to set up a PPTP VPN rather than use the version that is supplied with Zentyal so that I don't have to install VPN software on the client PCs and can just use the Windows client which all my users are familiar with.

I have managed to get the PPTP VPN working enough that I can connect to the server and the VPN is up but when I go into Explorer and type the name of the server eg


It sits for a few seconds and then times out with a "Can't locate the server" type message.

Can anyone point me to some documentation on how to fix this or directly explain what is going on, it feels like the firewall is blocking or something?
