make sure you have the compression modules loaded for ppp. if your linux
/var/log/messages has lines that say can't load module ppp-compress-??
then you need to load the compression modules.

did you compile the mppe patch into pppd? you need to do that before it
will support encryption

when it connects, windows makes a route for it automatically. You might
try reading the ppp-howto for info on how to setup routes for dialup users
(pptp uses ppp to connect, so it can be viewed just like a dialup
