Sorry to bump this old post, but I'm experiencing exactly the same
problem. I'm in another country for study, and build a pptp tunnel home
to get my mail from my exchange server at home.
Well, after I connect with the build in pptp client in Windows XP, the
tunnel lasts for about two minutes or so. After that, it disconnects
with no warning. I set a Redial option in the connection preferences,
but this doesn't work very nice. I can't find anything in the logs about
disconnects, or I'm looking at the wrong place. In the PPTP status
screen I see myself connect and disconnect, but I can't figure out what
cause the disconnect has.
Any help would be appreciated.

Onderwerp: [m0n0wall] PPTP random disconnects?
I have four or five users complaining of random PPTP disconnects when
connecting from XP to the m0n0wall's built in VPN server. The
login-logout logs confirm it, but I wouldn't mind more information, like
if the server or client dropped the connection. How can I dig up more?
