I have now succeeded in establishing connections from Windows to a VPN
server based on mpd4. But it has some severe limitations: I have to define
every single connection in the conf file (not a major problem). And I don't
see any option to authenticate against neither UNIX or Samba passwords. Is
that different through openvpn? Could you give some brief hints on the
configuration or maybe a reference to a useful howto?
