I can do it by myself. But the question is why no one packaged it for
fedora? because usually, when a project is popular, it is
being packaged. This led me to thinking that there are other, better
solutions for vpn server on Linux. Pptpd uses the ppp user space
daemon, and I simply do not know if this solution is better or
worse than the alternatives.
