That seems to work for you but I want something simple and cheap :). I have 
a Mandrake linux system on the other side of the firewall and I can't seem 
to see it as well as the other windoze boxes. I can tracert and ping outside 
the wan from the PPTP but I can't http or ping inside the lan. There must be 
a way that I am not seeing, I mean I see many messages on the list about 
others getting VPN and PPTP to work.
