    Yes this router support PPTP, but it seems only to connect to ISP's that require this to connect to the internet.
    So basically its a PPTP client, not a PPTP Server.

    You canĀ“t set this router up to accept connections from the outside and build a VPN tunnel,
    if thats what your trying to do. Thewre is no VPN option to activate in the router.

    You could have something else that handles VPN behind the router though.
    And pass through the data.
