MPPE issue in 3.0.9 - wait until 3.0.10 (if you've got TTLS clients and
TLS 1.2 around......) :-)

some around here would say to use 3.1.x - all depends on how you feel.
I have 3.1.x on a couple of production systems...stability isnt an issue
from my experience and I needed the features....

your server sends its cert (the one with the CN)..and the client is configured to
check that value.  the servers hostname isnt in the mix at all. its identity
is only via the CN in the server string...which means.... yes, you've got it,
if you have multiple servers you can have exactly the same server certificate
on all of them making your client config very nice and simple (and meaning
you DONT need wildcards or nasty things like that)

assumed? thats exactly how it works :-)
