PPTP and L2TP Ports – Steven Eppler's Blog
PPTP. PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol) is another technique to establish your VPN connection – but, sorry to say, the least secure one. Developed by Microsoft in conjunction with other companies, the technique had been compromised lately and according to security specialists, it's possible to unveil passwords while connecting. I've setup the port forwarding rules for PPTP on the Fios router MI424WR Gen-2 (1723 TCP + GRE) but no avail. The Internet clients clearly see the VPN server on my home network, but they are not able to establish the data connection (hangs on "opening the connection" or "verifying the username/password" depending on the client).

If your router doesn’t have this option, you need to open the ports manually. OpenVPN. Protocol used: UDP. We have OpenVPN UDP servers running on port 53, 80, 443, 1194, 8292.

If you are browsing the internet from your mobile phone or tablet, PPTP is the VPN protocol for you. PPTP, or Point-To-Point Tunneling Protocol sends packets via a GRE tunnel by using PPP. Sent packets are both encrypted at 128-bit strength and compressed via the MPPE algorithm. PPTP, just like OpenVPN is also able to work with DD-WRT.
