This guide helps you configure step by step remote access to the UTM using the Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP). PPTP allows single internet-based hosts to access internal network services through an encrypted tunnel. The structure is described in the following chart. PPTP is easy to set up, and requires on Microsoft Windows systems no additional client software.

First, you configure the UTM to allow remote access. Then, you enable the User Portal of the UTM for the remote access users.

The User Portal offers a configuration guide to the remote access user. You must provide users with their login data for the User Portal.

In order to use PPTP with UTM, client computers must support the MS-CHAPv2 authentication protocol, which is automatically available for Windows.
