Actually, the final step (setting the remoteip range) isn't required. I have a 
pptp server that assigns static ips to clients and I have no remoteip line at 
all. The remoteip line just gives the pptp daemon a range to pull from, 
similar to dhcp - if you're setting statics in the {pap,chap}.secrets file, 
then remoteip doesn't need to be defined at all. Just thought I'd clarify
