Unable to map network drive with PPTP VPN in Vyatta


   I have configured  Vyatta scommunity edition on a virtual server in Softlayer. The Vyatta gateway on the virtual has been configure for RA through a PPTP tunnel. The current configuration is as shown below

vyatta@vyatta-pptp-vpn# show vpn pptp remote-access
authentication {
local-users {
username poctest {
password poctest
mode local
client-ip-pool {


For the PPTP VPN client, the Windows settings are in 

Security tab - Point to Point Tunneling protocol & Require encryption. The CHAP & MS-CHAP v2 are checked.
In networking tab for IPv4-> properties, Next screen, Click Advanced and Unselected 'Use default gateway on remote servers'.


Through WIndows I am able to establish the PPTP connection however when I ping the public/private ( /) IP of Vyatta gateway I get a timeout and no response.


How can I debug what is wrong with this tunnel?


I need to map the network drive of a server on the same private VLAN after the tunnel is setup. This also is not working.


About a month back this whole scenario worked. I am not sure what I am missing?


Please let me know.
