RES: [pptp-server] Adding support for MS-CHAPv2 and MPPE

My understanding is to get only the
linux-2.4.16-openssl-0.9.6b-mppe.patch.gz and compile that for your system.
If you use rpm compatible system, then download the rpm package available
there as well.
Another option is to upgrade or install the kernel done
(kernel-2.4.9-31mppe.i386.rpm), that was my choice to install mppe support
in the Linux server.

Is it correct people?

Hey from the looks of the readme at the binarix site it seems that you
have compiled for rh72 a ppp rpm and a pptp rpm that includes support
for mschapv2 and mppe....if I just loaded rh72 would that work for me?

Go to and get Charles Howes'

Should work for kernel 2.4.x
And it doesn't mean you have to install openssl-0.9.6b, but it's based
on it.
