The wind doesn't seem to be blowing in my direction. Either I am getting
crazy or just losing touch. I am reading all the doco I can lay my hands
on about setting up a VPN gw and this is to use MPD. Now there is a nice
page (I love the setup notes this guy made!) here:
It talks about mpd-3.2 and 3.3 and this was written long ago. But
looking at my ports (4.9-STABLE and 5.2.1-RELEASE) the Makefile in
the /usr/ports/net/mpd show it's version 3.17.
At the time of writing his doco, March 2001, Gregory he says that mpd
was at version 3.2. That has lost me!
Was the port downgraded? Does anyone know if the patches for
external-auth were made part of the 3.17 port??
OK. I would like to setup a VPN gateway to a Microsuck Windows box. I've
had suggestions to use Cisco PIX for this, but I was wondering what it
is that the Cisco thingy will do that FreeBSD with MPD won't do. I am
also looking at other "secure implementations" of this project. I'm
still googling (giggling ;-)) but any other pointers are most welcome.

It is not enough to succeed. Others must fail.
