 Subject:  Possible problem with PPTP VPN implementation
 Date:  Sun, 25 Sep 2005 00:39:04 +0100

Running m0n0wall 1.2b10, as of this writing the latest version, there  
is a possible problem with the PPTP VPN implementation.

Basically what happens is that many web sites can not be accessed/do  
not load properly when connected to m0n0wall via the VPN. The problem  
continues even when fragmented packets are allowed:

"Allow fragmented packets
Hint: this option puts additional load on the firewall and may make  
it vulnerable to DoS attacks. In most cases, it is not needed. Try  
enabling it if you have troubles connecting to certain sites."

Kind Regards,
