During the installation process:

1. The following line is added to the /etc/iu.ap file to enable the autopush facility at startup:

-1 0 cipsec

where dev_name is the name of the interface without the trailing numbers (for example ipdtp, le, or hme). A line is added for every supported network device detected.

The VPN module is copied to the /kernel/strmod directory, which is in the system's module search path.

The pkginfo command provides information about the installed packages. For more information on other package-related commands, enter:

man pkgadd

Hi kutukutu9,


I have the same problem, if I remember correctly it exists only for some Solarises running in some Sparcs. Or UltraSparc.


One possible workaround could be to use dd-WRT firmware on the router.


That should run on a Linksys WRT-54GL. It is not tested by me but it could work.


The idea is that a Linux OS running inside the Router takes care of VPN PPTP.


If details of this is known please comment.

I also found this articles,

If this is true we need a workaround.
