CyberGhost officially ended its PPTP beta phase and integrated Point-to-Point to its services. PPTP is another protocol technique beside the generally utilized OpenVPN to establish an encrypted tunnel to the CyberGhost network and advisable, if OpenVPN is no option. With the additional PPTP feature Premium and Premium Plus subscribers can connect to the CyberGhost network, even if their respective device does not support OpenVPN or is too complicated to set up
To get PPTP installed is extremely easy. Just open the network connection settings of your device, choose a new VPN connection (often even called that way) and enter the needed personal data to get access to the CyberGhost network. Note, though, that this data is only available for Premium and Premium Plus users. It can be found in the respective online account. Please click on the entry ‘PPTP configuration’ in the right handed side menu and note the password and the server addresses you get there. The PPTP password is needed to avoid putting your regular CyberGhost account at risk, if your PPTP connection will ever be compromised.
