  9. <p><strong><a name="mppe"></a>7. Install MPPE Kernel Module </strong></p>
  10. <p>If you plan to use MSCHAPv2, MPPE is required. Kernel version 2.6.15 or above has already got MPPE built-in. Fedora Core 8 kernel version on the DVD is That means you do not need to install the MPPE module as you have to for older kernels. Information for MPPE on FC4 / 5 / 6 is in <a href="poptop_ads_howto_a1.htm">Appendix A1</a>.</p>
  11. <p>To test if your kernel supports MPPE:</p>
  12. <blockquote>
  13. <pre>[root@pptp ~]# modprobe ppp-compress-18 &amp;&amp; echo ok</pre>
  14. </blockquote>
  15. <p>It should return an &quot;ok&quot;.</p>
  16. <p><strong>Note:</strong> The latest kernel for Fedora Core 8 at the time of writing is</p>

  18. <strong><a name="pppd_pptpd" id="pppd_pptpd"></a>8. pppd and pptpd</strong>
  19. <p><a name="pppd"><strong>8.1 pppd </strong></a></p>
  20. <p>FC8 comes with ppp-2.4.4-2. MPPE support is already enabled. If ppp is not installed, use<em> yum</em> to install it.</p>
  21. <blockquote>
  22. <pre>[root@pptp ~]# yum install ppp</pre>
  23. </blockquote>
  24. <p><strong>Note</strong>: Information on how to update ppp module on FC4 / 5/ 6 is in <a href="poptop_ads_howto_a2.htm">Appendix A2</a>.</p>

  26. <a name="pptpd"></a><strong>8.2 Install pptpd</strong>
  27. <p>From <a href="http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=44827">here</a> download the pptpd tar ball, pptpd-1.3.4.tar.gz. You can make a RPM from it with the<em> rpmbuild</em> command. If you don't have the <em>rpmbuild</em> command installed. Get the package <strong>rpm-build</strong> through <em>yum</em>. </p>
  28. <blockquote>
  29. <pre>[root@pptp ~]# rpmbuild -ta pptpd-1.3.4.tar.gz</pre>
  30. </blockquote>
  31. <p>The command will create a pptpd rpm in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386 directory. Install the package with the <em>rpm</em> commad.</p>
  32. <blockquote>
  33. <pre>[root@pptp ~]# cd /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/
  34. [root@pptp i386]# rpm -ivh pptpd-1.3.4-1.i386.rpm</pre>
  35. </blockquote>
  36. <p><strong>Note:</strong><br>
  37. The pptpd rpm package is built against ppp-2.4.3 but FC6 or above has ppp-2.4.4. It prevents the tunnel to be established and gives the following error message is in /var/log/message.</p>
  38. <blockquote>
  39. <p>Plugin /usr/lib/pptpd/pptpd-logwtmp.so is for pppd version 2.4.3, this is 2.4.4 </p>
  40. </blockquote>
  41. <p>The workaround is to disable the logwtmp option in /etc/pptpd.conf. The drawback is the<em> last</em> command won't show the pptpd login information.</p>
  42. <p>I have produced a patched RPMs for pptpd to address the problem. You can find them from the following links.</p>
