PPTP – route UDP

Filed under: General,Router/PC Config — taing @ 10:13 am

Quick notes on adding BCP Bridging to PopTop PPTP server:

• We are using pptpd version 1.2.1 since it has better support for broadcasting than the earlier 1.1.4 version.
• When building pptpd use the following configure option: ./configure –with-bcrelay to enable the bcrelay module.
• In /etc/pptpd.conf, add bcrelay eth0 (replace eth0 with the name of your internal interface) This will enable broadcast forwarding between the ppp interfaces as well as the interface you specify.
• In /etc/ppp/options-pptp, make sure that the mppe required option is commented. Since we will be playing games over this VPN connection, encryption is not necessary.

Found this discussion where the problem of no multicast is solved by disabling the VMware adapters in the host.
