What is the easiest Linux distribution for servers VPN to choose?

Due to the fact that to raise stable PPTP server built-in Windows did not work, and any third-party software for these purposes there is, I made the decision to make a VPN server based on Linux virtual machine, but for this I need some super-lightweight distro, it is desirable to fit the commercials in 128-256 megabytes of RAM for the host its number does not Shine. Connect will be only 1-2 people, the network load will be miserable, so a big performance is not required, only stability and lightness. I also need to be Zerotier, but it seems like so anywhere arises. Prompt, please, a lot of distributions, to understand himself - it is unreal long.

Solution
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpine_Linux

The base system in Alpine Linux is designed to be only 4-5 MB in size (excluding the kernel).[citation needed] This allows very small Linux containers, around 8 MB in size, while a minimal installation to disk might be around 130 MB.

Alpine Linux. Great distro, I even work on combat servers, some places use.
Here is the manual for installing OpenVPN from off the Alpine linux Wiki:

Really not bad, but a sense from OpenVPN, if I need PPTP, kraynyak - L2TP... alas, but the first refused to accept the connection, and the second failed to start due to the inability to install Openswan. - Adela.Dach57 commented on March 19th 20 at 09:02
Why do you need PPTP? It is a vulnerable Protocol. L2TP/IPSec, SSTP - lukas_Douglas26 commented on March 19th 20 at 09:05

Debian netinst no graphics weighs and eats quite a bit.

If the VPN is all that you need take under RouterOS x86 with torrent trackers.
Looked in his direction, but alas, I need Zerotier and it's not there and not to put - Adela.Dach57 commented on March 19th 20 at 09:06
