 Subject:  1.11 to 1.2b10 PPTP Outlook issues
 Date:  Fri, 7 Oct 2005 12:59:00 -0400
I went ahead and upgraded to 1.2b10 because we are looking at
transitioning to OpenVPN from PPTP.  Everything seemed ok when I tested
after hours but I wasn't 100% thorough I guess.  We have about 30
laptops that use PPTP to connect and get their email, after upgrading
the router to 1.2b10 from 1.11 outlook could no longer authenticate
against the exchange server.  All computers are joined to the domain.  I
think somewhere or somehow the firewall rules were blocking the packets
required for the Kerberos authentication with DNS or I'm not sure, I
didn't have time to test it and I reverted back to 1.11 because web
outlook is slow over dialup and cellular cards and I didn't want to
further impact the field.  Anyone have any idea what may cause this and
possibly how if I went back to 1.2b10 I could fix this, maybe a new
option or firewall rule will be needed.  We have a dry season coming up
this winter and I could work through this more thoroughly.
