Sure, but it's a bit of a mishmash. I had to do rather a lot of
kernel hacking to get pptp to work and haven't made it into a nice
easy patch yet. You can download my modified sources from
<http://www.cawfee.net/dl/ppp-2.3.9-pfolk.tgz>; after extracting,
you need to
(cd /usr/src/sys/net; tar xzf -) < ppp-2.3.9-pfolk/sys-net_files.tgz
and then rebuild the kernel without GRE tunnel support. My /etc/...
files are in ppp-2.3.9-pfolk/etc_files.tgz.
The scripts I wrote to handle taking restarting the connection
(the service and my VPN provider appear to hang up somewhat freq-
uently) are in ppp-2.3.9-pfolk/scripts/up_*. You call them with
the parameters: username ipaddr; where username is your login (for
Netissimo users, that's fti/...) and ipaddr is the IP address of
the DSL modem. And obviously you have to do up_dsl before you do
I didn't "choose" pppd, it just happened that's how pptp was im-
plemented and I didn't want to tackle any more than I already had
on my plate. Anyway I feel ppp should be in-kernel, since most
other protocols are as well (No microkernels here!).
p.s. This is from 2.7-STABLE as of a while ago =)
p.p.s. stayup won't work for you but does for me; you can look at it
and add username and IP address arguments to the up_* commands.
