- allow "WAN IP address" as source/destination in firewall rules; reload
firewall rules when the WAN IP address changes
- the previous change also solves the PPTP VPN server + traffic shaper
problem (no more NAT redirection to localhost)
I think is is what caused the problem. Most people use a very permissive
pass rule on PPTP interface whith:
Source = PPTP clients
Destination = any
I suppose this is why most people did not notice the change with PPTP...
