A client of mine needs to initiate a PPTP VPN 'from' a Cisco 877w router into a Windows Server 2008.

So have I have seen that VPDN should be used and have also stumbled across various scripts on the internet, however I cannot work out how to add them to my current 877 config(standard config initialising PPPoA session from Dialer 0-

Here is a script I found-

ip multicast-routing

no ip gratuitous-arps

service internal

vpdn enable


vpdn-group 1


protocol pptp

rotary-group 0

initiate-to ip SERVER IP

interface Dialer0

ip address negotiated

ip pim dense-mode

encapsulation ppp

dialer in-band

dialer idle-timeout 0

dialer string 111

dialer vpdn

dialer-group 1

no cdp enable

ppp pfc local request

ppp pfc remote apply

ppp encrypt mppe auto

ppp chap hostname USERNAME

ppp chap password PASSWORD

dialer-list 1 protocol ip permit

I added this to my working config- but no joy.

Please assist!

You may try adding Zone-policy into your configuration (from out-zone to in-zone).
