 Subject:  AW: [m0n0wall] PPTP broken?
 Date:  Wed, 7 Dec 2005 09:06:28 +0100
As far as I was able to test this seems like an path mtu detection issue.

m0n0 1.2 PPTP-Server at WAN1 SDSL ISP1

Windows XP SP2 Client at WAN2 ADSL ISP2 can't connect

Windows XP SP2 Client at WAN3 ADSL ISP3 can connect at the same time the other client fails

Windows XP SP2 Client with WAN MTU bigger than m0n0 1.2 PPTP-Servers WAN1 always can connect

I don't know why m0n0 1.11 does things different but maybe this hint gets someone started. With m0n0
1.11 everybody always can connect from everywhere.
