I was wondering the security of PPTP. I know that MSCHAPv2 is vulnerable
and it is not recommended to use MSCHAPv2 alone [0][1]. The recommended
solution seems to use MSCHAPv2+PEAP accordingly to Microsoft but I'm not
sure how secure it is as I don't know the state of MSCHAPv2+PEAP. Does
anyone know about MSCHAPv2+PEAP implementation and security of it?

I am thinking of migrating to OpenVPN but it takes a little bit time
configuring the routers. The reason why PPTP was selected in the first
place was the ease of configuration.
