PPTP VPN Protocol

Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) was developed in the 1990s by a consortium of computing and telecommunications companies that included Microsoft and 3Com. This led to integrating PPTP into the Windows operating system as a standard feature, which drove its universal adoption for Virtual Private Network (VPN) service providers. Details of PPTP implementation are available from the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) open standards organization.
