If the pass-through that you reference is actually "redirection", then
yes I have it working. I redirect pptp connection to an internal
windows 2000 server. External clients point their pptp connection to
the m0n0wall wan interface, which gets redirected to the internal

- v1.11 generic pc image
- under VPN \ PPTP \ Configuration menu link
Changed radio button focus to "redirect incoming pptp connections to:
- PPTP Redirection textbox [enter pptp server ip]
- The default image supports 16 pptp connections. I beleive there is a
hack available for up to 50 connections.

Have you checked the system logs to see what error messages are occuring?
