Greetings. I have been running m0n0wall 1.1 at home (soekris 4511) and at
work (pc). I upgraded my home router to 1.2 and found an interesting
problem. I could not establish a vpn connection from work to home (using a
dell running winXP). I figured the problem was that my pptp server was
configured wrong. Things got interesting when I discovered that I could
connect to my home VPN from my parents' house using my powerbook (G4,
Tiger). Also, a friend of mine could connect to my network from Germany
using winXP. I read the posts on the 1.2 pptp issues and decided to upgrade
the work router to 1.2. After doing that, all is well! I can connect to
home from work now.
That is how I fixed the problem. Hopefully it will be useful to others.
