PPTP on DD-WRT

Install Correct Firmware

Make sure you have the Router installed with the correct firmware. In the upper right corner it should mention "vpn".

You can get the Firmware of your Router from the official site of DD-WRT. Be sure to check whether your router model has supported Firmware of VPN (In our case we have used OpenVPN generic firmware which supports both PPTP and OpenVPN).

http://www.dd-wrt.com/

Once you have installed VPN based firmware, open the web interface. Usually the default address to access the web interface is 192.168.1.1, but if you have a different IP configured, access through that IP.

The first page after installation will ask you to provide a new username and password for the web interface.
