Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am trying to connect to my work VPN using mpd as a pptp client.  The pptp 
server for my organization also runs mpd.

I have installed mpd from the ports collection using pkg_add -r mpd4.  The 
package, along with some dependencies, were installed without any errors.

When I attempt to connect to my work server, I receive the following message 
from mpd, when the debug level is set to 2.

netgraph: sendto(ng0:): No such file or directory

I can see the ng0 interface is created when I run ifconfig.  I have disabled 
the firewall and have the same results.  Following is a copy of the relevant 
parts of my mpd.conf and mpd.links file.  Please note, ip addresses have been 
From mpd.conf 

#       load myisp
        load vpn

        set debug 2
        new -i ng0 vpn vpn
        set iface disable proxy-arp
        set iface disable on-demand

#       set link mtu 1460
        set link keep-alive 10 75
#       set ipcp yes vjcomp
        set ipcp ranges a.b.c.40/32

From mpd.links

        set link type pptp
#        set pptp self v.w.x.212
        set pptp peer aa.bb.cc.155
        set pptp enable originate outcall
        set pptp disable windowing

If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.  I looked for a version of 
mpd with the pbi, but did not find one.

Thanks in advance for your help.
