DSR-500 PPTP Server not working
« on: January 21, 2017, 05:58:11 PM »


PPTP Server used to work in my DSR-500 gateway. Now the port 1723 used by PPTP Server is not listening anymore. If I telnet myrouter 1723 the connection is refused. I upgraded my firmware and started from factory default settings doesn't resolve the problem.

I need to get this running again for remote users.

What can I do?

Thank you, Caesar.

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under the router case.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

Internet Service Provider and Modem Configurations
  • What ISP Service do you have? Cable or DSL?
  • What ISP Modem Mfr. and model # do you have?

Also there is new FW available which may help. Let us know before updating:
