Monitor PPTP Windows VPN



I need an easy way to monitor my PPTP Windows VPN at the server side as described here:


I only can find info about Cisco and SonicWall VPN sensors, but not for a Windows VPN. Is possible?

Thank you.

Hi there,

I suspect that the connection is added as an interface within Windows. This would allow you to monitor this interface via the Windows Network Card Sensor. Could you try that?

Best regards.
