-Install PPTP VPN on server 2019

you-ve installed ADDS, DHCP, and Routing, and make sure the

After this the configuration should look something like this.
After this go to the Network and Sharing Center of the client that needs to connect to the VPN of the Server and click on Set up a new connection or network.
