Hi,

Just because i often read mails like 'we are using a pptp VPN'
on this list: pptp is horrible weak and should not be used
to protect critical channels or to authenticate users.
A paper can be found at http://stealth.7350.org/chap.pdf.
I know it doesnt help in this case but I hope it helps
one to decide against pptp :)

regards,
Sebastian
