This document is intended for who has configured PPTP server on LINKSYS and wants to connect her/his home computer to LINKSYS PPTP SERVER I'm using Windows XP service Pack 2 and WRT54GS version 4 with DD-WRT V2.3 VOIP

Step 1: You have to go to the "Network Connections" in you windows and do click over "make new connection" as you see on the image below , and click on "NEXT"


Step 2: Now you have to select "make a connection to my office/workplace" it is the 2nd option.


Step 3: Now you have to select VPN Connection


Step 4: Give the Connection a NAME , this name is just for "Name the connection" it has nothing related to VPN connection.


Step 5: If you have to connect to the internet with a Dialup Connection before try to connect to the VPN , here is the place where you do that.


Step 6: here is the most important step, make sure that you write correctly the WAN ip address of your LINKSYS , because otherway you can not connect to it.
