Windows 2000 PPTP-client configuration
Before starting, you need to install the Windows 2000 High Encryption Pack.
- Click “Start”, then “Settings”, then “Network and dial-up connections”.
- Select the “Make New Connection” icon.
- Choose “Connect to a private network through the Internet”.
- Depending on the usual connection, choose “Do not” of “Automatically” –dial the initial connection. When there is a permanent connection, like DSL or LAN, an initial connection isn't needed.
- Now fill out the DNS-name or IP-number of the PPTP-server.
- Now you can choose to make the connection available to everyone, or just the current user.
- Provide a name for the connection, for example the name of your company.
- Now you can login to the PPTP-server. First choose “properties”.
- The tab “General” is ok.
- The tab “Options” has to look like this (probable already does):
- Click “Advanced” on the tab “Security”:
- Click “Settings”. Select “Maximum strength encryption” and “MS-CHAPv2”. Then click “OK”.
- Other people shouldn't be able to use your files or printers over the PPTP-connection, so turn off “File and Printer Sharing”!
- Now you can establish the connection. When you're connected and you examine the status of the connection, you should see that the authentication was “MS CHAP V2” and the encryption is “MPPE 128”.
