 Subject:  RE: [m0n0wall] PPTP VPN - Beta 1.2b7
 Date:  Wed, 30 Mar 2005 16:35:59 -0600
I have found the issue.  I was testing behind a m0n0wall 1.11 box, connecting to either a m0n0wall
1.2b7 or to a test pfsense box, it gives me an error.  Those same boxes work when I am behind a
1.2b7 box.

Is there a known issue with using PPTP behind a 1.11 m0n0wall?

I don't know exactly what the 619 Error is... As long as I can remember, 
I got Error 629 with 1.2b5 and 1.2b6, but I'm not even 100% sure. My 
Win98 box logs nothing (at least I have not been able to find the logfile).

If it can help you, here is my running setup:

-> LAN =
-> WAN = A.B.C.D (useless)

-> Server =
-> Clients =

NOTE: I know I should have NOT used the fisrt /28 range within that 
subnet because the adrress is not usable, but I only have 
one client with assigned IP, see below.

Sample PPTP user:
-> Username = test
-> Password = test
-> IP = (assigned)



   <descr>PPTP traffic</descr>

This rule is extremly permissive: PPTP clients can reach whatever they 
want. But it's rather useful for debugging...

The clue is that this rule is defined on the PPTP interface, not the WAN 
or the LAN interface. I hope this is your mistake and now you're happy 
with PPTP ;-)

On my Windows 98 client, I use the folowing settings:


(Be carefull: the gateway is the PPTP server's IP adress. As with all 
PPP, PPPoE or PPTP links the remote end of the link is considered as local.)

-> I've configured the TCP/IP parameters of the VPN connection NOT TO 
use the remote WAN interface as my default gateway. I mean I have set 
this setting to OFF whereas the default is ON (Windows + MAc OS X).

-> I use 128-bit encryption [checked on m0n0wall]

I hope you'll find the solution. Please let me know if it does work or not.
