Deleted in the meantime. But was 4.10-RELEASE and latest 4-STABLE, both with GENERIC kernel.
I've been using 4.9 with mpd to establish my pptp connection. However since upgrading to 4.10-RELEASE and also 4-STABLE I'm having serious problems to establish a connection by mpd. It is mostly impossible to get the link up. It seems like FreeBSD isn't aware of the GRE packets coming back from my dial up gateway. When reading up on that on the internet I found, that something might have been changed on ng_pptpgre in 4.10-RELEASE an beyond. After donwgrding to 4.9 anything works fine again.
Just use 4.10-RELEASE or newer im combination with mpd and try to establish a pptp connection.
