Initial Public release of L2TPNS

I'm pleased to announce the first public release of L2TPNS.

L2TPNS is a LNS endpoint for L2TP tunnels. It handles the L2TP protocol internally, as well as the PPP protocol. It is very fast and can handle thousands of simultaneous users, and multiple megabytes/second of traffic.

Also supported is RADIUS for user authentication, a walled garden for users who fail authentication, speed throttling, traffic interception, usage accounting and hot-standby clustering capability.

This software has been in use for quite a few months in a production environment at a large ISP, and so is expected to be quite stable.

Thanks to Rev Adrian Kennard for writing the original code and allowing us to release it here under GPL.
