    Hi there!
    I have a problem with my VPN on Yosemite.
    In my home, i have a mac mini server, with a VPN PPTP server (I use Server App from Apple). From my workplace, i try to connect with my home VPN, Yosemite try to connect, but after a few seconds will return an error. From Yosemite console log, i can see this error:

    pppd 2.4.2 (Apple version 786) started by Yuri, uid 501
    pppd[5758]: pptp_get_router_address
    pppd[5758]: PPTP connecting to server (servername, serverip)...
    pppd[5758]: PPTP connection established.
    pppd[5758]: Connect: ppp0 <--> socket[34:17]
    pppd[5758]: LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests
    pppd[5758]: Connection terminated.
    pppd[5758]: PPTP disconnecting...
    pppd[5758]: PPTP disconnected

    Someone has the same problem or know how to fix???
    If I try to connect to the same VPN server with iPhone or Windows client i don't have any problem.
    Also, before upgrade to Yosemite (Mavericks) everything worked correctly!
    Thank you all!

    I experienced the same issue on Yosemite PB 2 while trying to connect to my L2TP-IPSec provider. No, I don't have a solution for this, either. I reported it.
    Hopefully, it'll be fixed in the next beta.

    Best regards

    Are you using the built-in VPN functionality? I found that it didn't work, but an external app to handle your VPN connection (I'm using VyprVPN's app) works perfectly fine in Yosemite.

    As far as I'm concerned, I'm using the OS X native VPN-function.
    The external configuration app of my provider (PureVPN Client) just re-uses the OS X native functions, hence it doesn't make a difference.
    Tunnelblick (OpenVPN client) works, I guess.

    Bump. Same issue. Tried various PPP options on my server. No solution.

    Yosemite PPTP issues

    I experienced PPTP issues from the very first pre-release and now on the official Yosemite release.

    I found a workaround :

    PPTP does not work if I have my ethernet card IPv4 manually configured, BUT if I use an Automatic (DHCP) configuration VPN (PPTP) does work.

    Although I set manually everything as in DHCP, VPN does not work.

    Don't ask me why, but this is working for me, from Yosemite pre-release 1.0 up to Yosemite official.

    Hope this could help

    That did the trick, thanks a lot. With dhcp i am able to connect to windows-pptp-servers again.

    Same goes for wireless connection, if its configured through dhcp it works, with a static ip it doesn't.

    Wow. A big Thank You from me, too.

    At first I was confused when you mentioned DHCP and VPN, but then I reconfigured my Ethernet to DHCP and suddenly it made sense.

    It's not what I wanted, since I cannot pin my IP at DHCP level, but at least it works.

    (I have no control over our DHCP server, unfortunately.)
