Cisco ASA VPN configuration

I am converting all of my PIX devices over to ASA platforms.  Several of my PIX 515's also support VPDN access.  Can someone take a look at the attached following code and make sure I have the ASA configured to match the way I have my PIX devices currently set up?

The one CLI command on the PIX that really concerns me the most is the 'vpdn enable outside' command.  I cannot find the equivalent CLI under the ASA.
PIX config:
ip local pool etpool 192.168.250.1-192.168.250.254
...
...
vpdn group PPTP-VPDN-GROUP accept dialin pptp
vpdn group PPTP-VPDN-GROUP ppp authentication pap
vpdn group PPTP-VPDN-GROUP ppp authentication chap
vpdn group PPTP-VPDN-GROUP ppp authentication mschap
vpdn group PPTP-VPDN-GROUP ppp encryption mppe auto
vpdn group PPTP-VPDN-GROUP client configuration address local etpool
vpdn group PPTP-VPDN-GROUP client configuration dns 172.20.3.11
vpdn group PPTP-VPDN-GROUP client authentication aaa RADIUS
vpdn group PPTP-VPDN-GROUP pptp echo 60
vpdn enable outside
 
ASA configuration:
ip local pool etpool 192.168.250.1-192.168.250.254
...
...
service-policy global_policy global
group-policy PPTP-VPDN-GROUP internal
group-policy PPTP-VPDN-GROUP attributes
 dns-server value 172.20.3.11
 vpn-tunnel-protocol l2tp-ipsec
tunnel-group PPTP-VPDN-GROUP type ipsec-ra
tunnel-group PPTP-VPDN-GROUP general-attributes
 address-pool etpool
 authentication-server-group RADIUS
 default-group-policy PPTP-VPDN-GROUP
tunnel-group PPTP-VPDN-GROUP ppp-attributes
 authentication pap
 authentication ms-chap-v2

Your VPDN is using PPTP, and the ASA does not support that as a remote access VPN protocol, just making sure you realize this. As it was common to create a VPN connection using PPTP in windows XP so that you did not have to load a client on the remote machines. They new idea is to use IPSEC and the Cisco VPN client or to go the SSL VPN route.

3nerds,

So, what you are saying is that if I make this change, my MS Windows XP users will no longer be able to VPN in using the Windows VPN client?

Thanks,
