It sounds like you are asking on the wrong mailing list.  Try visiting

As for poptop, the latest and probably best version to use is 1.1.2.
As for what you are trying to do, pptp is IMO not a suitable method for
doing site-to-site tunnels.  You should investigate linux s/wan.  I would
also highly recommend getting a pair of cheap (<$500) netscreen 5xp boxes,
which is likely to be cheaper than the hardware cost of two linux gateways.
