Re: bug #255367: Lake of PPTP in Debian first CD

I rather use PPPoE, but that's not always an option due to ISPs' choice
(of hardware or software).
Quoting http://www.poptop.org :
"What is PPTP?
PPTP stands for Point to Point Tunneling Protocol. It was developed by a
consortium including Microsoft and is used for establishing VPN (Virtual
Private Network) tunnels across the Internet. This allows remote users
to securely and inexpensively access their corporate network from
anywhere on the Internet.
PPTP uses a client-server model for establishing VPN connections. Most
Microsoft operating systems ship with a PPTP client, so there is no need
to purchase third-party client software. PPTP has the additional
advantage over other VPN technologies of being easy to setup."
