    Hi,

    Install the client:
    apt-get install pptp-linux

    The, You have to know: IP address of the PPTP server, the authentication domain name, the username and pass you are to use, the name of the tunnel, whether the encryption is in place.

    Config files:
    - /etc/ppp/options.pptp
    (e.g. lock noauth nobsdcomp nodeflate)
    - /etc/ppp/chap-secrets
    (username & pass)
    -/etc/ppp/peers/$TUNNEL, where $TUNNEL is the name you wish to use to refer to the tunnel
    - start connection: pon $TUNNEL (stop connection: poff $TUNNEL).
    After that, You have to set up the routing policy.

    Good luck.
