PPTP Error: MPPE required, but kernel has no support.

I am using Fedora Core 3, and installed PPTP, but receive this error:

Using interface ppp0pptpconfig: monitoring interface ppp0

Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/pts/2
MPPE required, but kernel has no support.
Connection terminated.
pptpconfig: pppd process terminated by signal 10 (failed)
pptpconfig: SIGUSR1

I looked at the docs on the website, but it seems to lead me to know solution. Do I need to remove MPPE and install a different version?

Any help would be great.

I figured it out.

I rebooted my computer, and then changed tunnel through all

Thumbs up

Hi! i figured out the solution without restarting server.
Here it is if this is still unsolved.

1- #modprobe ppp_mppe
2- restart service pptpd
3- again connect from windows machine
