Attention: What ever you do, you do it on your own risk

Contents

Prerequisite

You have to have firmware 1.34 already installed and opened for telnet access. If not, you can find a guide here: Open Stock Firmware LS-XHL

You need to have the optware IPKG system installed on your device. If not, you can find a guide here: Ipkg_on_the_Linkstation_(for_end-users)

For enabling the Microsoft MPPE-Encryption we need a kernel-Module that can be loaded by the stock kernel. For this you need to download the following package:

 http://downloads.buffalo.nas-central.org/Users/kenatonline/nobody/nobody.tgz

For Firmwares before 1.34 this also may work, but it's unknown if the needed Kernel-Modules are also available.

What's the aim

The aim is to realize a PPTP VPN-Server, that allows users to dial in, establish a PPTP-Tunnel, and work remotely on the LS (or your network).

What is needed

The good news are: if you have downloaded the package above, and if you are running Firmware 1.34 with the optware IPKG Feed, the basics are there.

The bad news: we need to add a kernel-module, the PPTP-Server (POPTOP) and need to configure the things.
