How do I know if MPPE is working? Do I have to choose
'require data encryption' on the MS client?
Also I get this error
'modprobe: Can't locate module ppp-compress-18 '
in my log, and I do have 
'alias ppp-compress-18 ppp_mppe ' in my modules.conf
file... can mppe be working if I keep getting this
error? Does anyone know how to solve this error?
