    Hi,

    Is there a way to force Windows PPP stack to use MPPE stateless mode ? It seems to negociate always stateful mode.

    Thanks in advance. Alex.

    It seems that stateless mode is not supported by all versions of
    Windows. E.g. central european Win2k does not support stateless mode
    and 128 bit keys (although WinXP supports both). WinCE aka Windows
    Mobile does not support stateless mode at all.

    If a Windows supports stateless mode you do not have to force it to
    negotiate this mode - AFAIR Windows does it by default. But when the
    peer does not support stateless mode then stateful mode will be
    negotiated.
