I posted a request at bugzilla the other day: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=128094...
Waiting for response...

There was a thread in May about VPN solutions for Fedora Core: http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-devel-list/2004-May/msg00715.html

In particular, the following cover PPTP (which uses the Microsoft MPPE standard):

The basics are that it taints your kernel, but I can't find anything that looks GPL incompatible. I haven't followed up why it isn't in the mainstream kernel. It's been in CVS for a fair while, but looking at the ppp-2.4.2 tarball, it looks like it was pulled from the distribution or something. If I goto CLUG on Thursday night and Paul Mackerras is there, I'll ask him what the story is.

Regards,
Nathan.
