Re: VPN on NT

PoPToP for Linux (PPTP server) seems to work ok from a functionality standpoint - and it's free.  The benefit, of 
course, is that every Win9x/NT box in the universe has a free client for it.

I've used it VERY casually, and have not done extensive lab tests viz performance or security.  I know that MS's 
initial implementation of PPTP was thoroughly lambasted by Schier among others; I'd be interested in whether folks have 
done a similar study of PoPToP.  Anyone?

Cheers,

I'm looking to find a good (preferably free) VPN product for NT/98 use,
the server should be unix based ... right now we use FreeSWAN for unix
VPN, but we need a good solid windows client to grant the windows users
remote vpn access.  Anyone have any pointers?
