 Subject:  PPTP Static route to remote (client) network Problem
 Date:  Mon, 21 Feb 2005 06:18:03 -0600 (CST)

I'm trying to setup a remote network as a PPTP client to m0n0. I have a
Dlink firewall (DFL-300) with support for PPTP on a remote network. Here
are the details.

M0n0 Network
WAN IP 66.243.xxx.xxx

Rules allow all traffic between PPTP and LAN

PPTP Config - Server address:
        Remote Address Range:

Remote Net

I have created a PPTP user that is assigned a static IP from the /28
network above. The dlink firewall succesfully connects to the m0n0wall.
The interface is pingable from the m0n0 lan. I want to be able to route
from the m0n0 lan side to the private remote network. So I've created a
static route as follows:

Int: PPTP       Net:      G/w:

Everything works great once I do this. However, as soon as the pptp user
logs out and pptp int goes down, the static route dies. If the pptp link
is re-created, the route doesn't come back up. I have to delete the static
route and re-create it after the PPTP link is created.

Am I doing something wrong? Should I be doing this in a different way?
