Has anybody worked on implimenting  the pptp that windows NT supports in
4.0b2

for those that are not familiar with this protocol, it is a ip-tunnel
that does encryption on the link to allow a virtual private network over
the internet.

There was some discussion on the Linux-kernel mailing list a few weeks
ago. The news is that the protocol did not make it to official status.
Besides, we have been able to do this with ssh for some time. There is
also an IPSec implimentation for Linux.

1. tunnel point to point vs physical point to point

If you have 2 systems on a point to point link you would address them
by a /30 block? When creating 'gre' tunnel you can use /32 for example
ip addr add 1.0.0.1 peer 1.0.0.2 dev mydev.

why can't /32 of arbitray addressing be used on a point to point
between 2 systems?
