FYI: Proxy.sh has teamed up with FlashRouters to provide you with pre-configured VPN routers at unbeatable rates. They ship globally. Don't hesitate to take a look if you want to save precious time.

If you would like to set up an access to the proxy.sh PPTP tunnels from DD-WRT, please follow this procedure.

        1) In DD-WRT, access the VPN tab found under the Services section.

        2) Enable the PPTP Client.

        3) Set the Server IP or DNS Name to the proxy.sh PPTP IP given in your welcome email or in your panel's product details.

        4) Set the MPPE Encryption to mppe required, no40, no56, stateless.

        5) Enable NAT.

        6) Enter your VPN User name and Password.

        7) If these steps do not work, please setup PPTP in the WAN section instead.

        8) Confirm everything you have tweaked so far and connect. That's it. Enjoy!

NB: If you encounter difficulties to connect with PPTP, please try to switch to OpenVPN. OpenVPN is more reliable, more secure and more flexible. OpenVPN also allows you to try various ports, including 'discreet' ones such as TCP 443. Below, you will find an aggregate of useful guides and articles that will help you troubleshoot your problems, should you have any.
