"3. How bad is it? 
Very. Microsoft PPTP is very broken, and there's no real way to fix it
without taking the whole thing down and starting over. This isn't just
one problem, but six different problems, any one of which breaks the
protocol" 

Just my two cents ...

Asunto: [m0n0wall] PPTP vs IPSEC?

Looking for opinions here.  Just how evil is PPTP compared to IPSEC for
remote access to the LAN.  I just enabled it on a test box and had a
WinXP
client logged in within a matter of minutes.  IPSEC's need for a
separate
client on WinXP seems like a hassle.  Is it worth it?
