Hello, I have found your document on http://www.advancevpn.com/en/download_other.html, thank you it seems very helpful. I am trying to set up a PoPtop server on a linux redhat 7.2 system. I followed the exact instructions as you mentioned in your article, but I am still little bit confused. this is what i have done:

1) Unziped all the tars (clean linux-2.4.16, ppp-2.4.1 and pptpd-1.1.2) to /usr/src and appled the patches by using the following:

[/usr/src] gzip -d < linux-2.4.16-openssl-0.9.6b-mppe.patch.gz | patch -p0
[/usr/src] gzip -d < ppp-2.4.1-openssl-0.9.6-mppe-patch.gz | patch -p0

then in step 2 you mention: 

Configure and make everything. Make sure to include everything that is PPP related from "Network device support". (PPP and PPTPd work with plain ./configure; make; make install)

what i did was: ./configured; make make install;    both ppp and pptpd

But I am not sure if i need to compile the whole  linux-2.4.16 kernel before or after. Can you please be more specific in step 2 and describe the step by step process. 

Thank you very much for your support.
