Hi everyone I´m trying to make a vpn with pptp on CHR Mikrotik I already set the clients and all the configuration on winbox, but when I try to connect the clientes with the server it gives me a GRE error telling me that the server is blocking the comunication because the GRE its not available so I think that the protocol its not set on the DigitalOceans firewalls rules or I dont know. So it will be great if some one could help me with this. Thank you.

Hey @Morfeo,

I believe that this might not yet be possible but it looks like that it is planned to be implemented in the future.

It looks like someone has had the same idea before and has posted it on our Product Ideas board. The best thing to do would be to head over and add your vote to it, as well as adding any additional information in the comments for exactly what you’d like to see implemented!

Hope that helps!
