Hello everyone,

 I am running OpenBSD 4.4 and am having issues with poptop 1.3.
When I try and make a PPTP connection it gets to the final stage and then dies.  The /var/log/messages error is:

 Jan  7 15:21:39 cerberus pptpd[31899]: CTRL: Ignored a SET LINK INFO packet with real ACCMs!
Jan  7 15:21:39 cerberus pptpd[31899]: GRE:
read(fd=7,buffer=3c0046a0,len=8196) from PTY failed: status = 0 error = No error Jan  7 15:21:39 cerberus pptpd[31899]: CTRL: PTY read or GRE write failed (pty,gre)=(7,6)

I also have a large output from /var/log/ppp as I set poptop to debug mode.  The part of it that looks like it could shine some light on my issue is:

Looks like there is a Chap failure.
