PPTP client option "missing" in webinterface
|Reported by:||avalanche||Owned by:|
PPPD and PPTPDs default behavior is to determine (if possible) the local IP address from the hostname, if no IP is specified and theres no way to specify this in the webinterface for the PPTP client, so this will eg. always be the default behavior.
This is not always good, especially not when multiple clients connect to the same PPTPserver, when using openDNS as DNS server on clients, all clients will end up having IP 22.214.171.124 (hit-nxdomain.opendns.com) when not able to resolve the routers hostname and that makes all the routes at the pptpd server point to the same IP and thus only one of the PPTP connections work
Theres a PPPD parameters noipdefault that changes that behavior. And for some reason it seems to me that the field "MPPE Encryption" under the PPTP client in the webinterface could be renamed to Additional options and then have the ability to specify more options than only for MPPE Encryption. See my solution in the above mentioned thread.
