sorry
well You need the pptp-linux package for fedora
Also lookup any GUI wrapper : in fact only ppp is configured and it uses pptp only during one ocasion while 'handshaking' with the MS-pptp authentification.

go install somehow pptp on fedora

sorry we let You hang so long ;-)

You can try openvpn.

yum install openvpn

I installed it on Centos5.0

I am still working on it; however, I am stuck with the routing part of it (making the openvpn server be the gateway between the two LANs I want to connect). If you decide to go for it, then let me know. Just remember, I am still working on the routing issue.

Thanks.

If this link will help you out something to resolve your issue, -

As I'm also working on IP forwarding but still no luck. Please Let me know if it works for you.

Thanks.

There are, unfortunately, many different versions of what is collectively called "VPN." The standard didn't evolve fast enough and quite a few vendors just "went out and did something." Or they decided on what they considered to be "a cool feature" and just built it, wedging it into the protocol in ways that they sometimes dubbed "proprietary." (Engineers want interoperability, but accountants want exclusivity.)

Dumped on top of that is the fact that VPN is actually a framework into which many different cryptographic techniques can be incorporated. (Quite obviously, many of them are classified.) So, the software environment can be quite hard to set up.

Dumped on top of that is the tendency of engineers on open-source projects to build exactly what they needed at the time and to forget the rest of the standard. You look through an old source-file and there it is... the dreaded word, "TODO."
