Do you have any errors of the issues you are seeing. – WojonsTech Apr 12 '13 at 7:09

The localip option represents the IP of your machine on the LAN (at shell, run ifconfig to find it). The remoteip option is a range (or set) of IPs that are assigned to the clients connecting to your PPTP server (like a DHCP server handing out addresses to hosts on the network). Both the localip and remoteip options should be set to the same subnet for everything to work.
