Hi,

I'm trying to set up a vpn connection to the university library by using 
pptpclient. In other OS's this takes around 10 seconds, but in FreeBSD 
this seems very difficult to do, and I've no idea why. It looks like 
there is a connection made, but after a minute or two it just disconnects 
and still unable to access the vpn.

My ppp.conf is:
EUR:
  set authname "xxxx@xxxx.xx"
  set authkey "xxxxxxx"
  set timeout 0
  set ifaddr 0 0
  add vpn-eur-pptp.eur.nl HISADDR
  disable ipv6cp

The messages log says:

After a lot of searching and googling I never found the answer. Has anyone 
here succeeded in setting up a working pptp vpn connection?

Thanks in advance,
Marco
