To configure global PPTP options, proceed as follows:
On the Global tab, enable PPTP remote access.
Click the toggle switch.
The toggle switch turns amber and the Main Settings area becomes editable.
Make the following settings:
Authentication via: Select the authentication mechanism. PPTP remote access only supports local and RADIUS authentication.
Local: If you select Local, specify the users and user groups who should be able to use PPTP remote access. It is not possible to drag backend user groups into the field. Until a user account has been specified, PPTP remote access cannot be activated.
Note – Username and password of the selected users may only contain ASCII printable characters1.
Note – Similar to SSL VPN, the Remote Access menu of the User Portal is only available to users who are selected in the Users and groups box and for whom a user definition does exist on Sophos UTM. Authorized users who have successfully logged in to the User Portal will find a link to installation instructions, which are available at the Sophos Knowledge Base.
Assign IP addresses by: IP addresses can be either assigned from a predefined IP address pool or distributed automatically by means of a DHCP server:
DHCP server: If you select DHCP server, also specify the network interface through which the DHCP server is connected. The DHCP server does not have to be directly connected to the interface—it can also be accessed through a router. Note that the local DHCP server is not supported; the DHCP server selected here must be running on a physically different system.
Your settings will be saved.
The toggle switch turns green.
The PPTP daemon live log logs all PPTP remote access activities. Click the button to open the live log in a new window.
