PPTP is no longer considered a secure VPN technology because it relies upon MS-CHAPv2 which has been compromised. If you continue to use PPTP be aware that intercepted traffic can be decrypted by a third party, so it should be considered unencrypted. We advise migrating to another VPN type such as OpenVPN or IPsec.

Use the PPTP DNS Servers fields on the PPTP server configuration to set the DNS servers that are supplied to PPTP clients. Simply enter the DNS servers there.
