pptp-linux is based on pppd, so invocation is very similar:

% pptp hostname [ppp-options]

So, for example, I invoke pptp with:

pptp debug name cananian remotename ntdialup
route add -net netmask gw

You will see three pptp-related processes in your process list: a call
manager, a GRE/PPP en/decapsulator, and pppd.  To shut down the pptp
connection, kill the pppd process.


Most trouble with pptp will probably be due to incorrect pppd
configuration. Be sure you thoroughly understand MS-CHAP support in
pppd.  Use the 'debug' option to pppd to log connection information;
this will help you trouble-shoot the pppd side of pptp.

Did you run a route -net command for the network that you connected to
after the link came up?
