Windows Manage Remote Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol

This module initiates a PPTP connection to a remote machine (VPN server). Once the tunnel is created we can use it to force the victim traffic to go through the server getting a man in the middle attack. Be sure to allow forwarding and masquerading on the VPN server (mitm).
