Hi,

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what you need to enter to set-up the PPTP VPN on the Boxee box. The name, password with encryption on are all fine. If you want to link up to one of the US servers what do you need to enter. I've checked the configuration file but I can't see any server names e.g. acevpnus.com. Will it accept the ip address instead of the server name?

Thanks in advance for any help, this VPN stuff is all new to me.

Infact it's recommended to use IP's instead of domain name. Use one of the IP's from acevpn-udp-faster-US config.

ACEVPN,

I have tried a number of variations on entering the IP addresses from the 'acevpn-premium-udp-faster-US' configuration file into the Boxee Box VPN set-up, but for some reason I have failed to connect, I keep on getting an error message. I have put remote in front of the IP, put all the text together, left spaces and just used the IP address on it's own. It's probably something simple that i'm missing, but i just can't see it.

I used a different PPTP VPN last month and i connected to it in a matter of seconds, using their username, password and domain name.

If you have any ideas what i'm doing wrong please advise.

Cheers,

David

What error are you getting? Can you try connecting to IL server? You just need to input the IP for the server.

Hi,

Unfortunately I still have been unable to connect to the PPTP on the Boxee Box. I have sent an email to support with my details etc so hopefully I'll be able to resolve this issue soon.

Thanks for your help.

I just replied to the email as well :)

You need the enter the IP in the format a.b.c.d. 443 is only needed for OpenVPN. Not for PPTP and L2TP.
