CyberGhost opened PPTP beta for public!

CyberGhost recently started its PPTP beta phase. PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol) is another VPN protocol, which you can use to get access to the CyberGhost network without any third party software. BUT: Please always check, if you can instead use OpenVPN or the CyberGhost client. PPTP is not as safe as OpenVPN and therefore only an option, if you are lagged in a situation, where you can’t use OpenVPN or your device does not support it.

To get PPTP up and running is extremely easy. Just open the network connection settings of your device, choose a new VPN connection (often even called that way) and enter one of the following addresses, when asked for a server:

de.pptp.cyberghostvpn.com
ro.pptp.cyberghostvpn.com
us.pptp.cyberghostvpn.com

Of course you must decide, which server it should be, but usually you are free to create as much VPN connections as you like to and therefore can build three different ones for different countries to choose from later on.

As long as the beta test is running, please use cyberpptpv both as a username and as the password.

After closing beta and transferring PPTP officially into the CyberGhost universe, you need to generate a PPTP password in your online account. This is due to security reasons. Like said, PPTP is not as safe as OpenVPN and more a fallback, when OpenVPN is no option. Having different passwords reduces the danger of having your CyberGhost account being cracked significantly.

Another important note: Some routers like AVM‘s FritzBox need you to clarify, if you want PPTP being activated. Please consult the manual of your device regarding this matter. It should point out the right things to do.

However, note also, that it’s necessary for us to have an eye on our capacities while being in beta and might reduce the number of open slots from time to time! So, please, don’t get angry, if you can’t always log-in. Might also be, we have to work on the settings and/or techniques.

Have fun testing! Sufficient documentations on how to use PPTP on iPhone, Android etc. are in the pipeline and will be published in our knowledgebase. The German versions are already available.
