Troubleshoot Tuesday: How to connect your StrongVPN PPTP account
The recent “How to download your StrongVPN OpenVPN file” blog post has proven a popular tool for new customers so we thought we should do a similar post for PPTP! For customers who are new to VPN Routers, PPTP may seem a bit easier than OpenVPN, just because there is no file download. To run your PPTP connection over your Sabai VPN Router you only need to have a few pieces of information from your VPN provider:
- Server Address
- Username (given by VPN provider, usually different from website login)
- Password (given by VPN provider, usually different from website login)
If StrongVPN is your VPN provider, you can find this information as follows:
Step One - Log into your StrongVPN account by visiting StrongVPN.com (Customers in China may need to use an alternate URL). Please note that this login information is different than your Sabai Technology login information. It is also different from your PPTP login information.
Step Two - Once logged into the Customer Area, hover over VPN Accounts and click on VPN Account Summary.
Step Three - In the table named, Your PPTP Accounts, visit the last column on the right and click the black Account Setup Instructions button.
Step Four - In the area named, PPTP Account Info, you will find your Server Address, Login, and Password. Copy and paste these items directly into the VPN Router PPTP page for accuracy, and/or write them down for future use. Your Login and Password for PPTP will be different from your StrongVPN.com customer login information.
Note: If you live in an area that may have difficulty resolving a reliablehosting.com web address, you can use the Server IP information interchangeably with the Server Address. Also note that if you change your server location, you will have to re-enter this PPTP information into the VPN Router.
Now you have the appropriate PPTP information for your VPN Router! This will allow you to run your entire home network over your PPTP StrongVPN account. If you aren’t sure where to input your PPTP information in the Sabai VPN Router, you can review the Sabai VPN Router setup instructions.
Every VPN provider is going to have a slightly different process for accessing server information.
