 Subject:  AW: [m0n0wall] PPTP: connection hangs after a few moments

Hi Chris

Thank you for your reply. 

The remote PPTP server is a m0n0wall running on firmware 1.11 or 1.2b6 (I
tried the beta version too). 
After a few tests with other clients, I noticed, that this problem only
occurs, when I use a Windows 2000 computer as PPTP client. Everytime I used
a machine running on Windows XP, the connections works good. 

Unfortunately, Windows is not logging anything. Also m0n0walls log does not
say anything special. Because the log is a bit too long for posting here,
you can download a TXT-file here: http://www.thosi.ch/m0n0_log.txt There is
only one message, that should not appear in my opinion: 
	mpd: [pt0] rec'd unexpected protocol IP on link -1

What is the remote PPTP server?  Is it logging anything pertinant?  Is your
Windows box logging anything pertinant?
