This is great. I really appreciate this; so far, I've found so little
documentation, so this is really helpful.

I've done all of the following, except I haven't supped the -current
source tree and recompiled (yet); I do have this issue, though:

>         ## MPPE support
>         +chapms
>         +chapms-v2

The above is in the /etc/ppp/options file, but I get the following error:
/usr/sbin/pppd: In file /etc/ppp/options: unrecognized option '+chapsms'
(and when I comment out the +chapsms, I get unrecognized '+chapsms-v2')

Does anything in the pppd need to be updated to -current?

I'll take a look at this, since it'll be necessary for our remote machine
to see stuff on the server's (possibly local) network, too.

This may be a silly suggestion, but you did make sure that
net.inet.ip.forwarding is set to 1, right?  (sysctl -w
net.inet.ip.forwarding=1) The machine has to know that it's responsible
for forwarding packets coming along on the ppp interface...
