I have looked at every post regarding my problem and 99% of them say to
simply make sure there is a PPTP rule which allows access to the LAN. I did
that a long time ago.
As I said, it used to work fine with the betas. With 1.2, something is
I've done the following and had an interesting result:
* Connected a computer via PPTP to my m0n0wall.
* Had laptop continually ping a computer on my LAN, which *should* respond,
but doesn't. Result is typical "request timed out"
* Under Interfaces:WAN, made a change to the "Block Private networks"
checkbox. This allowed a single ICMP packet to go through while it was
saving, then it went back to request timed out. Somehow this is clearing
something to work, although I can find nothing in the logs indicating it.

Well, this sure shows you do not search thoroughly. There are several

I have several boxes out in production. (Over 10 now) One of them I can
PPtP in, and get out on the internet with that IP address, and ping all m0n0
interfaces, but nothing on the LAN subnet. I have not had time to figure
out why. Others with a similar problem found resetting to default, and
building the config via the web gui fixed it. I have left mine "broken" to
examine closely when I have time. I still have not had time.
