Oups I'm using the latest kernel 2.6.9-42, 2.4 was a typo.
The pptp server already have the mppe patch.
I'm talking about my CentOS gateway that I'm using to get to the internet.
The gateway should'nt need that path it's only needed on the server part.

Windows XP -> CentOS gateway -> Internet -> PPTP server

I need to be able to connect to the pptp server with an XP client. As I said
linux client is ok.
