To continue in line with the articles dealing with the VPN, today I’ll explain how to configure a PPTP VPN on a router Ubiquiti EdgeRouter Lite without a radius server.

To be able to do it without a radius server, you have to use the configuration in command line. To do this, you can connect in ssh to your router (or with the web interface of your router and open the CLI).

  • Activate the local authentication mode rather than RADIUS
  • Define a local account
  • Set IP to use when clients connect put it away. Here you can connect 6 users max simultaneous

Replace the IP addresses above by him range corresponding to your network IP


Optional parameters
