L2TP/PPTP proxy server

Post by Waterspuwer »

It would be amazing if Gargoyle could run a L2TP proxy server (or perhaps the lesser secure PPTP). Both are supported out of the box with pretty much all devices, such as Android, unlike OpenVPN.

Agree

Was surprised a few years ago when Eric choose OpenVPN

I understand OpenVPN is very secure in comparison?

Most devices can run an OpenVPN client

I also think pptpd service is more convenient.

Thanks for your suggestion.
If you could close the issue on github now that you've added your voice here, that would be greatly appreciated :)

I personally prefer OpenVPN. PPTP violates the provisions of the NSA. The protocol is classified as very dangerous.

Yeah, I've heard lots of sulfurous stories about PPTP... OpenVPN could be a nice alternative! I've been recommended NordVPN, but I'm yet to try it so I can't tell if this recommendation is justified.
