Hello I 'm trying to setup a pptp connection to a free vpn Server.

ip: 121.7.193.163 username: free password: see http://www.nlfreevpn.com/
I found https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Pptp

so I reconfigured and compiled the kernel, and:

Code:
 emerge net-dialup/pptpclient ppp;
 pptpsetup --create my_vpn --server 212.7.193.163 --username free --password xxxx


Now how do I start the connection and how do I know all traffic is going through the tunnel?

Does pptp follow the standard route to the internet? no, it has to pas ppp ...

I found
Code:
 pptp-command
                      pptpd call my_vpn dump debug logfd 2 nodetach

ifconfig -a -> https://bpaste.net/show/0f0c805a57f9 is this ok ?
