Re: PPTP question.
Thought this was already addressed in your older thread HD5830Gamer -- »PPTP vs L2PT vs OPENVPN for defeating Internet censorship..
Did you bother to read the article link I provided? Specifically
Put another way, you got enough computing power, doesn't matter how long / complex you make the password,
...the fundamental weakness of the authentication and encryption protocol is that it is only as secure as the password chosen by the user. As computers get faster and distributed attacks against password files become more feasible, the list of bad passwords-dictionary words, words with random capitalization, words with the addition of numbers, words with numbers replacing letters, reversed words, acronyms, words with the addition of punctuation-becomes larger...
you can just brute force the password.
Also this has nothing to do about "leaking the IP." Something to keep in mind is generally there's no way to
"hide" an IP as that fundamentally breaks the way the internet works, namely end-host-to-end-host connectivity.
