For those interested in an L2TP implementation... good news & bad news :-)
The good news is that the "libpdel" library (port devel/libpdel)
now includes a PPP library with L2TP server support. MANY THANKS
to Vernier Networks, Inc. for agreeing to open source this code.
This is a netgraph based PPP library.
The bad news is that this code is a library, not a server, so you
can't use it as an L2TP server yet. However, it is written to do
everything except for the "policy decisions" (i.e., all of the hard
work) and there is a simple proof-of-concept test L2TP server program
for one remote client that can serve as sample code.
The next step (if folks are interested) is to use this code as the
basis for writing a working L2TP server. Hopefully others will be
able to contribute since I'm too busy to do it all myself.
If you're interested in this project, please join the MPD mailing list
(mpd-users at lists.sourceforge.net) where we can continue discussion.
