    i cant find a thing on the /dev/ppp so im lost, im so close to finishing this proxy connection yet i get this error. i used the apt-get one for it and im sure i have everything but the dev/ppp

    anyone got information about this?

    *update*

    ok i broke this down to where im getting a permission denied for the /dev/ppp
    will keep on it.

    i hope this means i cant host a pptp. this has taken forever to set up and hopefully theres a way around it.
