    SSTP-CLIENT on Ubuntu:
    It's pretty simple to integrate sstp-client into the Ubuntu / Debian distribution
    distribution. An example script is provided in support/peer-sstp-example.txt

    - Specify your MSCHAP password in /etc/ppp/chap-secrets
      Example Entry:
         SSTP-TEST\\JonDoe  sstp-test   'testme1234!'    *
    - Create a connect script in /etc/ppp/peers/sstp-test, similar to the example
      provided in ./support. Swap out user-name as appropriate
    - Start the script as: pon sstp-test

    Hello seanmccully: still requires installation of SSTP-CLIENT which sends me the earlier problem of not being able to follow the installation instructions.

    I give up but thank you all for the efforts.
