Not this one: ENOTUITS. But I'd like to suggest to incorporate
information from http://www.shorewall.net/PPTP.htm and
http://poptop.lineo.com/setup_pptp_server.html on PPTP and
MPPE. At least temporarily until the US vs. Non-US problem
for the kernel and PPP goes away.

I just set up PPTP and the description at the two sites applies
to Debian, too.

Obstacles that should be removed:
1) integrate MPPE in the kernel.
2) patch PPP for MPPE and MSCHAPv2.
3) upgrade PPTP to 1.0.1.

I sincerely hope this can happen soon. Until then, SuSE is ways
easier to set up for PPTP. (Dunno what they deliver in the US,
but here in Germany, they have those patches integrated.)
