So a client has asked me to setup PPTP VPN on a cisco 1800 router and I've tried to follow this link;


but when i attempt to connect using the management username/password, it fails saying the username/password is invalid on the domain. Does anyone have any ideas what is going on here? I've tried playing with the encryption settings on the client, but with no luck. Thanks.

The only way I could get this to connect is to set mppe to auto and only allow PAP authentication, but with that, there is no encryption...is it not possible to have an encrypted PPTP connection to an IOS router without using a RADIUS server? (seems all other docs reference using a radius server). THanks
