I'm trying to use pptp-php-gtk to configure and start a tunnel to a pptp vpm server at work...
The problm is that when I start the tunnel I get:
Using interface ppp0
pptp-php-gtk: monitoring interface ppp0
Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/pts/0
Couldn't set pass-filter in kernel: Invalid argument
MPPE required, but kernel has no support.
pptp-php-gtk: pppd process terminated by signal 10
# modprobe ppp-compress-18
FATAL: Module ppp_mppe not found.
The question is how do I go about getting the relevant files and installing them?
(Im clueless when it comes to patching the kernel
I have just found an article here
that mentions the follwoing:
2. mppe module that is shipped with 2.4.x kernel series is missing from the default kernel of this release 2.6.x, i wont blame nobody for this absent module but it is an inconvinence because i know a lot of people who connect to their company/organization's VPN using MS mppe protocol and they cant do it with the default 10.0 community releases kernel. As of the lastest information it will be shipped with the 10.0 stable release.
That at least backs up my conclusions that mppe isnt included as default, so any tips on getting and installing the relevant files?
