FYI, Windows is capable of using PPTP connexions (from Win98SE at least).
So you may try PPTP daemon for Linux. I never tryied the daemon myself
since we use dedicated hardware for the daemon side. But the Windows client
works just fine and is given with the default Windows installation
componants => nothing more to get, just select Communication / VPN.

I did try PPTP client for Linux (with Debian Woody) and didn't success,
but I must admit I only tried for a few minutes... And I'm pretty sure it
will works when I'll really have time to fully test it. Probably this
week-end... ;-)

Cheers, J.C.
