What free VPN client to use with my PPTP server on Mikrotik?

Tue Jan 29, 2013 5:27 pm

Hi all,

Tried a few VPN clients none of them work properly, can't even connect, please advice a good free VPN client for Windows.
VPN provided by Windows is not an option for me although it works, but I another client.

Thank you.

Do those clients even support PPTP?

Nope, Checkpoint, Cisco and ShrewSoft (the last one) are all IPSec-Clients.

AFAIK There is no Third-Party PPTP Client for Windows.

Since Microsoft PPtP client works well, there probably is no need for another.
Anyway, why can't you use the default windows client?
