 Subject:  Forwarding PPTP vpn clients to a W2k3 server
 Date:  Mon, 7 Nov 2005 15:12:44 -0800
Hello all,
 
I need some clarification on the "Redirect Incoming PPTP Connections"
feature.  
 
 In particular, what are the differences between setting-up "Inbound NAT and
Firewall rules" for PPTP VPN clients (e.g., port 1723) compared to turning
on the feature "Redirect Incoming PPTP connections to:" on the VPN:PPTP page
and setting up firewall rules.
 
I am trying to setup m0n0wall v1.2final as a DHCP server which will forward
VPN requests to a NATd W2k3 server running Active Directory and RAS as the
authentication server for VPN:PPTP clients.
 
In the current working config, the pass-through feature is turned on, but we
had to setup the W2k3 server to hand out IP address from a static pool. Is
it possible to config the VPN:PPTP pass-through so that m0n0wall is the DHCP
server and the w2k3 box is the VPN authentication server?
 
Thanks,
john
