I've setup pptp server on cisco router today. The remote client IP addresses are assigned on this cisco router by DHCP. Also I set up option 249 and 121 to provide classless routing for my VPN clients.

Option 249 and 121 used for two routes: 10.0.0.0/8 and 192.168.0.0/16.

I've tested this configuration on my Windows XP and Mac OS X Snow Leopard. All working just fine.

But my Windows 7 computer gets only the first address from the option 121 and ignores the next one. Why?

How I can fix it or trace/debug it?

Configuration of dhcp pool is:

ip dhcp pool pptp-users
  network 10.255.241.0 255.255.255.0
  default-router 10.255.241.1
  dns-server 10.255.249.40
  netbios-name-server 10.255.249.40
  option 249 hex 080a.0aff.f101.10c0.a80a.fff1.01
  option 121 hex 080a.0aff.f101.10c0.a80a.fff1.01

If I change routes in the option all works the same way. Windows XP and MacOS X works. Windows 7 just got the second one route 10.0.0.0/8

what happens if swap these routes? if you try to manually set route for second network? –  gelraen Jan 25 '11 at 20:02
    
If I swap these routes I got all the same. WinXP and MacOS X works fine. Windows 7 got second one (10.0.0.0/8) only. If I set this route manually on Windows 7 it's working fine. –  pchel Jan 25 '11 at 23:12
    
Windows 7 is connected to any subnet from 192.168/16? Can you show it's routing table before connecting to your PPTP server? –  gelraen Jan 26 '11 at 8:30
    
gelraen, No. I updated the post with routing table. –  pchel Jan 28 '11 at 19:22
