|| ||RFC: [0/3] PPP MPPE module|
|| ||Fri, 18 Jun 2004 11:10:01 -0500|
The pptpclient project at SourceForge has for several years maintained
the PPP MPPE (Microsoft Point-to-Point Encryption) ppp
compressor/decompressor module outside of the Linux kernel tree, as it
has needed arc4 and sha1 crypto routines which were not in-kernel
yet. As they now are, I'd like to submit this code for review, and
when deemed ready, inclusion, into 2.6.x.
MPPE is a requirement for connecting Linux clients to Linux and
Microsoft PPTP (Point to Point Tunneling Protocol) servers.
Following two emails each contain patches.
1) Add ppp_mppe.c file to drivers/net
2) minimal touches to Makefile, KConfig, ppp_generic.c, and
I've asked that the pptpclient-devel list be opened to posts by
non-subscribers during this review period at least.
