4 Multiple Subnets

PPTP clients can only belongs to one subnet. If your network has multiple subnets, you need to add route in client pc to access other subnets. For example, the server side has two subnets 192.168.10.x and 192.168.11.x. PPTP works in 192.168.10.x. To access another subnet, you need to execute below command in client:

route add mask
