Fedora 11 Update: pptp-1.7.2-6.fc11



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-5785
2009-06-02 13:29:37
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : pptp
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 1.7.2
Release     : 6.fc11
URL         : http://pptpclient.sourceforge.net/
Summary     : Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) Client
Description :
Client for the proprietary Microsoft Point-to-Point Tunneling
Protocol, PPTP. Allows connection to a PPTP based VPN as used
by employers and some cable and ADSL service providers.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This update removes the checking in pptpsetup for MPPE support in the kernel and
pppd when creating a tunnel, since MPPE is included out of the box in Fedora 11.
The checks required the "strings" program, and hence would fail if the binutils
package (which includes the "strings" program) was not installed.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Mon Jun  1 2009 Paul Howarth <paul city-fan org> 1.7.2-6
- Don't check for MPPE capability in kernel and pppd unless we're creating a
  tunnel that requires encryption
- Don't check for MPPE capability in kernel and pppd at all because current
  Fedora releases and EL >= 5 include MPPE support out of the box (#502967)
