Unstable VPN PPTP connection

Postby radzish on Wed Jan 30, 2013 10:04 am

Hi,

I have problem using VPN PPTP connection to my home network.
Connection is being established successfully, but in a few seconds (usually 30-40) it stops working.
I was using standard VPN client through Cinnamon Network Settings.
My friends were using the same my VPN server successfully for half of the day (on their Windows 7).

I am using Linux Mint 14 x64 (Linux kernel-mint 3.5.0-17-generic #28-Ubuntu SMP Tue Oct 9 19:31:23 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux).
VPN Server is running on (Asus RT-AC66U [Linux RT-AC66U 2.6.22.19 #1 Tue Nov 6 23:19:25 CST 2012 mips GNU/Linux]). I checked and it seems like it is:
accel-pptpd v0.8.5 compiled for pppd-2.4.5, linux-2.6.22.19

Logs from Mint:
