Module                  Size  Used by
ppp_mppe               10480   0 (autoclean) (unused)

SSLeay is not needed for the pppd 2.4.1 patches because the rc4
implementation is in the mppe kernel module, ignore the filenames below
-- pay attention to the content.  :)

http://samba.org/ftp/ppp/ppp-2.4.1.tar.gz is the pppd source you will
have to patch.
adds the mppe support into pppd.
http://planetmirror.com/pub/mppe/ppp-2.4.1-MSCHAPv2-fix.patch.gz fixes a
MSCHAPv2 issue. 
gz is the linux kernel patch you will need.  This patches against 2.4.18
and 0.9.6d.

After decompressing ppp somewhere (like /usr/local/src)

gzip -d -c ppp-2.4.1-openssl-0.9.6-mppe-patch.gz | patch -p0
gzip -d -c ppp-2.4.1-MSCHAPv2-fix.patch.gz | patch -p0
cd ppp-2.4.1 ; ./configure ; make ; make install

[Assuming files are in /usr/local/src]

Cd /usr/src/linux
gzip -d -c /usr/local/src/linux-2.4.16-openssl-0.9.6b-mppe.patch.gz |
patch -p1
make modules SUBDIRS=drivers/net
make modules_install

Hope this helps,

This rings a bell.  Doesn't that require MPPC, and isn't MPPC
unavailable to us?  I'm mainly on the PPTP Client side of things, and
here is what we have on this;
