fedora9 pptp configuration for relakks - pon mis missing

Hi all,

I wanna setup a pptp configuration on a Fedora9 system without any gui.
For this I followed the link:

It tells my how to configure
- /etc/ppp/optiones.pptp
- /etc/ppp/chap-secrets
- /etc/ppp/peers/Relakks

but at the point when starting "pon Relakks" - the binary >pon< was not found...

Before I checked the configuration I installed the needed packages by this link

using the commands
rpm -Uvh
yum --enablerepo=pptp-stable install pptpconfig

It told me to install a lot of stuff (I believe the most of it is used for a gui which I don't have installed)

I configured my needed files in /etc/ppp and tried to start >pon<
but >pon< does not exist....

Does anybody of you has any informations/suggestions how to install pon/poff (and other needed cli related commands which are needed to pptp) on a fedora 9 system ?

Thanks in advance !!!
