installing Webmin and pptp with ssl on openvz


This post explains installing and configuring webmin and pptp with ssl on openvz vps. The os template is centos5.

On the node :
modprobe ppp_async
modprobe ppp_deflate
modprobe ppp_mppe
vzlist -a |grep IP_of_vps
vzctl stop [VEID]
vzctl set [VEID] --features ppp:on --save
vzctl start [VEID]
vzctl set [VEID] --devices c:108:0:rw --save
vzctl exec [VEID] mknod /dev/ppp c 108 0
vzctl exec [VEID] mknod /dev/ppp c 108 0
vzctl exec [VEID] chmod 600 /dev/ppp

You need all these modules on node:
[root@dallas5 ~]# lsmod | grep ppp
ppp_mppe 39816 0
ppp_deflate 39168 0
zlib_deflate 52760 1 ppp_deflate
ppp_async 45184 0
ppp_generic 63760 4 ppp_mppe,ppp_deflate,ppp_async
slhc 39680 1 ppp_generic
crc_ccitt 35200 1 ppp_async

On the VPS:[Openvz]
rpm -ivh webmin-1.550-1.noarch.rpm
/etc/init.d/webmin start
chkconfig --level 35 webmin on
rpm -ivh pptpd-1.3.4-2.rhel5.i386.rpm
/etc/init.d/pptpd start
chkconfig --level 35 pptpd on
yum install openssl openssl-devel
yum install perl-Net-SSLeay #for ssl+webmin
perl -e 'use Net::SSLeay' #testing
echo $? #testing exit status '0'

You can access the webmin at https://IP_address:10000 and do the further configuration of pptpd and ppp.
