I need to make a pptp tunnel from a cisco router with a Microsoft Server, i've searched the cisco site over and over. Probaly missing something realy simple but i can't seem to find any configuration examples.

My setup has to be as follows, clients in the lan connect with the internet through the ios router. Now there is a third party wich is providing a service to our customer. The third party only provides this service through a pptp tunnel. Does anybody has any idea's for a solution? all clients in the lan need to connect with the application.

You can't do what you want (initiate a PPTP tunnel from your IOS router to the Microsoft server).

Either your clients needs to individually initiate PPTP connections, or you need to build an IPSec tunnel to the company providing the service you need (and they need to accept IPSec connections).
