I'm running a PPTP server on a ubuntu VPS, which has around 20 users . currently we use passwords like this "bi9_Knh78A#" . is this considered safe ? What's the best method to choose passwords ? How secure is PPTP VPN when passwords are very strong ? any tip to increase security ?

If you are really worried about security, are you sure that PPTP is the correct choice? – Zoredache Aug 19 '11 at 9:02
