 Subject:  Please help with a PPTP setup
 Date:  Sun, 22 Jan 2006 16:00:51 -0800 (PST)
I am at wits end trying to get PPTP up.  I have followed the excellent information in the Monowall
Handbook Chap 9 and get now where. I am sure my problem is something simple I have overlooked but I
am getting nowhere after several days of trying.

I did a fresh load of Monowall 1.2 to get a “default” installation.  I have WAN IP of
and a LAN IP of  LAN DHCP is enabled with a range of to
 From the LAN nic I go to a D-Link switch to a client (XP SP2).  The client gets a dynamic IP
address and is able to access the internet fine.

Per Chap 9.5, I enable the PPTP server and enter for the server address and for the remote address range. Click save.  Per Chap 9.6, I make a user.  Per Chap 9.7,
I make a new rule using the “PPTP” tab of the rules page as shown. Per Chap 9.8, I make a user using for “VPN server selection”. When I launch the VPN connection client I enter the user
name and password from when I made the user in the Monowall user tab.

I have disabled the XP firewall.

Every time the VPN connection attempt comes up with error 800 - can not connect to the VPN server. 
I am at a complete loss.

What am I doing wrong?
