[CentOS] mppe support in kernel-2.6.9-42.0.3.EL

I would second this suggestion. We use OpenVPN to control access to our
management network and it works really well.  We currently manage over
50 people with VPN keys and the list is growing.  The only drawback is
that there isn't a very good web based GUI to administer your keys.
When you have a security team consisting of 10 people, it can be a bit
of a pain relying on bash scripts for key generation/revocation.

Or you could just use the very fast/modern/more secure openvpn package
from DAG's repository. Loads up very easily with no patching or
compatibility issues and can be configured using certificates (no poor
user password). The only real added work is loading the client software.

Just my 2 cents,
