Please stop following up to this ITP and telling me you don't understand
the description unless you have prior experience of L2TP in an ISP
environment. If you don't know what L2TP is or how an LNS fits into the
picture, then this package probably isn't for you. I don't believe any
of the terms used should be alien to the sort of person this package
will be of use to.
