Cisco routers as PPTP client

Is it possible to have a C831 or a C1721 to act as a VPN PPTP client that "calls" a Windows 2003 server to establish a connection?

Today I have 2 Windows 2003 server, where one is client and the other is server, but I want to replace the Windows client with a Cisco router... is this possible?

Thanks.

Re: Cisco routers as PPTP client

A good link, but it seems I need it the other way around. I need to call TO the Cisco router, not FROM it.

Is that not possible, or does it just lack an example? :)

Thanks again.

Is it possible to do with L2TP then?

Thanks.

Yes possible with L2Tp.Check out for a feature called 'L2TP Client-Initiated tunnel'.

PPTP Client isnt supported in Cisco Routers other vendors support it if iam correct in low end routers.

Re: Cisco routers as PPTP client

Thank you for the tips, but all the articles seem to use the Cisco router as server, and Windows as client. I need it to be Windows as Server and the router as client.

And I have now spent the whole day trying to get this to work, but no :(

So if someone has a guide how to use a Cisco Router as L2TP client against a Windows 2003 server (with shared keys), it would be very much appreciated :)

Thanks to all who has answered so far.
