PPTP VPN does not work

I cannot connect to a PPTP VPN on my phone using Virgin Mobile network. I can connect via any other network perfectly fine. OpenVPN works fine however, but I need PPTP to work. Is it blocked?

Re: PPTP VPN does not work

Hello

I use PPTP VPN here at home and have no issues, just as a side note you may have already found this "The Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) is an obsolete method for implementing virtual private networks. PPTP has many well known security issues. PPTP uses a TCP control channel and a Generic Routing Encapsulation tunnel to encapsulate PPP packets.". So in some areas it may be blocked.

if you run a port checker on your router from https://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/ this will tell you if it open of closed.
