The change makes sense to me, but this isn't a product of the PPPEXT
working group.  The RFC is Informational, and I believe that PPTP is
Microsoft's product.

Re: [Editorial Errata Reported] RFC2637 (4790)

Megan Ferguson
All,

Thank you for your input on this errata report.

In researching this case, we see a message from the IESG that states:

The IESG has approved the Internet-Draft 'Point-to-Point Tunneling
Protocol (PPTP)' <draft-ietf-pppext-pptp-10.txt> as an Informational
RFC.  This document is the product of the Point-to-Point Protocol
Extensions Working Group.  The IESG contact persons and Thomas Narten
and Erik Nordmark.

We also see the following IESG Note on the document itself:

IESG Note

   The PPTP protocol was developed by a vendor consortium. The
   documentation of PPTP is provided as information to the Internet
   community. The PPP WG is currently defining a Standards Track
   protocol (L2TP) for tunneling PPP across packet-switched networks.


So we have left the source as ppext for the time being. Please let us know
if you feel the message was inaccurate in 1999.

Note that we have gone ahead and updated the status of this errata report
to “Verified” (as this change seems to be purely editorial in nature anyway).

We note that the document contains similar pointers to Section 2.2 in the
following sections (in addition to the one pointed to in Section 2.2 originally):

2.4, 2.6, 2.8, 2.10, 2.13

We have updated the notes field of the errata report to mention these cases as
well.  Please let us know any objection.

Thank you.
