(1/4) > >>

mesb:
Hi.
As we know new version of pf, removed pptp server.
We still have lot's of mobile, pc users and want use features and be up to date.

Is it hard to made pptp as package for pf 2.3 and above?

P.S.
We understand responsibility and let us keep freedom of choise!

cmb:
No, we will not add the PPTP server back as a package. Time to move on.

The underlying mpd components are still there, so you could run it manually if desired. No, I will not post instructions.  :)

OpenVPN is glorious and they've made it very easy to use since pfSense version 2.0 with the OpenVPN Client Export package.


* It has support for every major operating system
* Works on a single TCP/UDP port, which is much easier for supporting connections behind a firewall as it doesn't rely on GRE
* It's security hasn't been broken for over 20 years

If you've every had to troubleshoot multiple PPTP clients behind a single firewall, OpenVPN will be a welcome godsend.

I take few smartphones, notebooks, there is nothing _installed_.
About security, there is sense to think before project realization, sometimes there is just no matter.


All this situation is sad, i just want my freedom.

It looks like when i just want my old fashion car fixed and asking where is good specialists, guys from inernet tells me: just by new car that is so cool and awesome and anybody use it and must be happy with it.
Guys it's not that i want. I know that it not so safe, not so fast or anything else.
But i'am happy with it and just not need what everybody else think.

Thanks for attention and answers. :)

As cmb said, all the underlying mpd components are still there, so you could run it manually if desired. What you lack isn't freedom, what you lack is will power.
