Subject: [pptp-server] PoPToP on RedHat 7.2

Trying to set up PPTP on a brand new Redhat 7.2 installation.  The
following appears in the syslog when the remote user tries to connect
(IP address changed to protect the innocent):

pptpd[12788]: CTRL: Client control connection started
pptpd[12788]: CTRL: Starting call (launching pppd, opening GRE)
pppd[12789]: pppd 2.4.1 started by root, uid 0
pppd[12789]: Using interface ppp0
pppd[12789]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/pts/1
pptpd[12788]: Error writing GRE packet: Operation not permitted
pptpd[12788]: CTRL: GRE read or PTY write failed (gre,pty)=(5,4)
pptpd[12788]: CTRL: Client control connection finished
pppd[12789]: Modem hangup
pppd[12789]: Connection terminated.
pppd[12789]: Exit.

The ip_gre.o module is loaded, as are the relavent PPP modules.  Any
thoughts as to what I've missed?
