network management framework (PPTP plugin GNOME GUI)

NetworkManager attempts to keep an active network connection available at all times. It is intended only for the desktop use-case, and is not intended for usage on servers. The point of NetworkManager is to make networking configuration and setup as painless and automatic as possible. If using DHCP, NetworkManager is _intended_ to replace default routes, obtain IP addresses from a DHCP server, and change nameservers whenever it sees fit.

This package provides the GNOME bits of NetworkManager's PPTP plugin.

	* src/nm-pptp-pppd-plugin.c
		- (nm_ip_up): set MTU to 1400, which is what Windows XP/Vista currently
			use for PPTP MTU
	* src/nm-pptp-service.c
		- (construct_pppd_args): send 'noauth' since for the moment there's no
			way we could possibly authenticate the PPTP server
