I followed these instructions: http://askubuntu.com/a/305401

How can I connect to my VPN server? What's the ip address I need to connect to? I want to do that from my mobile phone.

# Sample Poptop configuration file /etc/pptpd.conf

# Changes are effective when pptpd is restarted.
###############################################################################

# TAG: ppp
#   Path to the pppd program, default '/usr/sbin/pppd' on Linux
#
#ppp /usr/sbin/pppd

# TAG: option
#   Specifies the location of the PPP options file.
#   By default PPP looks in '/etc/ppp/options'
#
option /etc/ppp/pptpd-options

# TAG: debug
#   Turns on (more) debugging to syslog
#
#debug

# TAG: stimeout
#   Specifies timeout (in seconds) on starting ctrl connection
#
# stimeout 10

# TAG: noipparam
#       Suppress the passing of the client's IP address to PPP, which is
#       done by default otherwise.
#
#noipparam

# TAG: logwtmp
#   Use wtmp(5) to record client connections and disconnections.
#
logwtmp

# TAG: bcrelay <if>
#   Turns on broadcast relay to clients from interface <if>
#
#bcrelay eth1

# TAG: localip
# TAG: remoteip
#   Specifies the local and remote IP address ranges.
#
#       Any addresses work as long as the local machine takes care of the
#       routing.  But if you want to use MS-Windows networking, you should
#       use IP addresses out of the LAN address space and use the proxyarp
#       option in the pppd options file, or run bcrelay.
#
#   You can specify single IP addresses seperated by commas or you can
#   specify ranges, or both. For example:
#
#       192.168.0.234,192.168.0.245-249,192.168.0.254
#
#   IMPORTANT RESTRICTIONS:
#
#   1. No spaces are permitted between commas or within addresses.
#
#   2. If you give more IP addresses than MAX_CONNECTIONS, it will
#      start at the beginning of the list and go until it gets 
#      MAX_CONNECTIONS IPs. Others will be ignored.
#
#   3. No shortcuts in ranges! ie. 234-8 does not mean 234 to 238,
#      you must type 234-238 if you mean this.
#
#   4. If you give a single localIP, that's ok - all local IPs will
#      be set to the given one. You MUST still give at least one remote
#      IP for each simultaneous client.
#
# (Recommended)
#localip 192.168.0.1
#remoteip 192.168.0.234-238,192.168.0.245
# or
#localip 192.168.0.234-238,192.168.0.245
#remoteip 192.168.1.234-238,192.168.1.245

localip 10.99.99.99
remoteip 10.99.99.100-199

@Braiam: Done. Why do you need ifconfig? –  mrSuperEvening Sep 16 '13 at 21:58

ifconfig output seems to not be here. We need the output to get the IP address assigned to your system. If the IP is an actual public IP address and not a private network IP address (like behind a router) then you can connect to that. Otherwise, we need you to find out the public IP address and maybe do some port forwarding :/ –  Thomas W. Sep 16 '13 at 22:02
    
@Braiam done!.. –  mrSuperEvening Sep 16 '13 at 22:05
    
Router I am pretty sure. @Braiam –  mrSuperEvening Sep 16 '13 at 22:12
    
Will your cellphone get a range of ip's that you know of? –  Braiam Sep 16 '13 at 22:13
