When I had a request recently to implement pptp on CentOS 5.x,
and found that it was not supported in the standard kernels and
repos, I took that as a great opportunity to get the customer
away from PPTP (the work of Kindergarten Cryptographers according
to at least one well-know security site), to something better.

They are now using OpenVPN instead, and are very happy with it.

I know openvpn is a better solution i'm using it to connect the branch offices with the main office.

We use pptp because the easy configuration on the user's computer, there is no need to install extra software and it works with clients using windows, linux or mac.
