I'm currently working on a VPN setup using Windows 2000 and have been trying
to research the security issues involved.
I've been able to find documentation about the problems with PPTP under NT4
(big problems) but have found indications that at least some of them have
been fixed in the Windows 2000 version of PPTP, provided that only MS-Chap
V2 is used rather than the older MS-Chap. What I haven't been able to find
are any specifics regarding what issues if any still remain in Windows 2000
Obvisously L2TP/IPSec would be a more secure option but may not be tenable
for the current situation.
Can anyone provide any input on the security on Windows 2000 Server PPTP?
