First, the installation and configuration of the server. This is a relatively simple matter. The package pptpd contains the poptop server in Debian, and the defaults are reasonable, save for adding your IP range to /etc/pptpd.conf. Also, Debian has defaults in /etc/ppp/pap-secrets which allow users with a /etc/passwd entry to authenticate with ppp. These didn't seem to work out of the box, for some reason, so you may need to manually add a user and password pair in there in the standard pap-secrets format (user * password * or something similar).

you will need ip_gre on your server!
(put something about required modules here please? I just used Debian default kernel and it Just Worked).
