there are two layers , first the lan then vpn

verify your lan is healthy by running :" /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart "
then run ifconfig and check the eth0 entry

to establish vpn i don't use pptp-command , i use pppd
create file  /etc/ppp/peers/tech-vpn , then run pppd call tech-vpn
this is an alternative for providing pppd parameters in command line
in tech-vpn put :
user USER_IN_PAP_FILE
pty "pptp TECH_VPN_SERVER --nolaunchpppd"
usepeerdns
file /etc/ppp/options
edit /etc/ppp/pap_secrets and write
USER_NAME TECH_VPN_SERVER PASSWORD

after running "pppd call tech_vpn"
use route command to replace your lan gateway
with vpn remote gateway

your lan gateway can be found using route before running pppd
or in /etc/dhcpc/dhcp**info

your vpn remote ip can be found using "ifconfig ppp0 " ouput

the route commands are :
route add -host TECH_VPN_SERVER gw DHCP_GATEWAY
route add default gw REMOTE_VPN_IP
route del default gw DHCP_GATEWAY
i am not sure the first route command is needed
