I finally got it working with mpd4 (can only check it from my own private
network right now). Files are as follow

        load pptp1

        new -i ng0 pptp1 pptp1
        set iface disable on-demand
        set iface enable proxy-arp
        set iface idle 0
        set iface enable tcpmssfix
        set bundle enable multilink
        set link yes acfcomp protocomp
        set link no pap chap
        set link enable chap
        set link keep-alive 10 60
        set ipcp yes vjcomp
        set ipcp ranges
        set ipcp dns
        set ipcp nbns
        set bundle enable compression
        set ccp yes mppc
        set ccp yes mpp-e40
        set ccp yes mpp-e128
        set ccp yes mpp-stateless

        set link type pptp
        set pptp enable incoming
        set pptp disable originate

Hope I can access my (Samba) homedrive from the outside.
Line compression doesn't seem to work, but that has something to do with
some proprietary MS stuff or what?
There is now way I can authenticate via my Samba or system passowrds?

Thanks for the advices so far...!
