    Hi all


    I am trying to configure pptp on an MX80 but really struggling. 


    Can anyone either :


    A: Post a demo or working config

    That would be great

    Hi , pptp is not supported in Junos . But you can use l2tp/pppoe/ipoe instead

    Hi adgwytc,



    Greetings, Besides not being supported PPTP VPN is a way less secure connection compared to L2TP which is what I would recommend you as an alternative, here you can find a sample of how to go about it:




    In case you want to run this oven an IP sec tunnel using an SRX firewall:  https://forums.juniper.net/t5/SRX-Services-Gateway/L2TP-over-ipsec-passthrough/td-p/262379


    If this solves your problem, please mark this post as "Accepted Solution" so we can help others too \:)/

    Thank you for the responses. Much appreciated.

    I already have L2TP configured for IPv4 and IPv6 and both working as expected.


    I was asked initially if I could configure PPPTP (Which I guess is now PPTP) for user who want a secure connection that are not DSL for if they require a VPN. I noticed some options via the services stanza but, as you rightly mentioned, I could only find documentation for SE and SRX hence my question.


    I will go back to the customer and ask what they require exactly as there may have been some mis-communication or the wrong perception of what they actually want.
