I don't think it is a m0n0wall issue, but a Windows issue. Windows
assumes that EVERYTHING is supposed to go over the PPTP connection. I
have had this happen, forget that this is normal, and think there is a
problem with my internet connection. It is not. As soon as I disconnect
the PPTP, everything is normal...
Unless someone has a solution, I think that this is normal operation...
