Takes some getting used to, but once you've grokked the way it works (helps
a little bit if you've done IPSEC stuff before), it becomes second nature.

[ You can also use PoPToP, which is a PPTP server, but PPTP is poopie, so
you should use IPSEC anyway. ;-) MS has a well-integrated Win9x IPSEC client
now, so there's little reason to use PPTP anymore. ]
