Just to update the thread as PPTP is include in 3.0.0, if your default FORWARD policy is DROP, you may need to add inbound and outbound PPP rules.

As per the previous post, in your FORWARD chain, create two new rules (you can use “+” as a wild card rather than specifying each of the ppp interfaces)

Create a new ACCEPT rule, select routed packets only and set IPTABLES Parameters: -i ppp+
Create a second ACCEPT rule, select routed packets only and set IPTABLES Parameters: -o ppp+

* * ACCEPT all opt — in ppp+ out * 0.0.0.0/0 -> 0.0.0.0/0 PHYSDEV match ! –physdev-is-bridged
* * ACCEPT all opt — in * out ppp+ 0.0.0.0/0 -> 0.0.0.0/0 PHYSDEV match ! –physdev-is-bridged

Works a treat.
