Windows PPTP VPN and Static Routes
Posted on 2014-11-11
Hi everyone. I'm looking for a way to add a static route automatically when a client connects to the VPN via the Windows PPTP client. If I do the steps manually, everything works fine as intended, but to ask my remote people to perform these steps is asking way too much. The challenge I see is that once the connection is created, the automation would have to be able to get the IP address that was assigned and then create the static route based on that.
I tried adding the static route on the VPN server as part of the RRAS, but it doesn't seem to work. I assume that is because we uncheck the gateway option in the VPN client.
