Thank you for the suggestion Lee, but I'm afraid that doesn't work 
either. Same problems as described before. Max Noel hit the nail right 
on the head, though. I got it working with

while ip_addr == "":
        ip_addr = get_addr()
        if ip_addr != '':

Script works like a charm now! Still rife with bugs and problems that 
would make it more or less useless for anyone except me - but a 
perfectly good, pptp config program already exists. I just made my own 
for education reasons.

Anyone curious can view the whole thing here:


I'd welcome any constructive criticism. Also, I'm storing a lot of 
passwords in plain text files. I hope I got all the permissions stuff 
right, but again, if anyone happens to spot any obvious flaws please do
