i am not able to configure pptp on lion server


On HT4748 everything is explained


I enabled the root user


Then after the first line int the cli-prompt it asked me  for the password and then nothing happens :-(


Open Terminal (located in /Applications/Utilities/), and execute this command:

    sudo serveradmin settings



In the console I got the following result


29.11.11 01:11:13.611 sudo: jostbeadmin : TTY=ttys000 ; PWD=/Users/jostbeadmin ; USER=root ; COMMAND=/usr/sbin/serveradmin settings

Who has been able to active this in 10.7.2 Server?

    If you are speaking of nothing happening per se right after the serveradmin settings command, something should happen (sort of). You should hit return, it should go to the next line and sit there. That would be in input mode for future commands, there is NO prompt. So, then you copy and paste in the furst command, and again, no response is given, etc.


    Is that what is happening?
