 escape char's

I just got this to work, everything went real smoothly except it took me a little while to figure out why I was getting this error:

Oct 28 18:15:32 aynlaptop pptp[80308]: log[decaps_hdlc:pptp_gre.c:129]: short read (0): Invalid argument

Turned out that we have to escape anything outta the ordinary, the most obvious is the '\' in NT_DOMAIN\username, also if you have anything weird in your password, you need to escape those as well.

Just thought I should add this in case somebody out there are wasting time figuring out that same error.
