I have the same problem (using 1.2B7 on WRAP board), connecting from the
WAN side. I can on the other hand connect with pptp client from the
LANside connecting to adress M0n0wall).

My PPTP-VPN Rule shows;

Proto  	Source  Port  	Destination  	Port  	Description
* 	* 	* 	* 	        * 	Default PPTP -> any
And yes i did disable "block private ranges on wan".

I still use 1.2b7 because i want use my WLAN wich is not recognized by 1.21.
Although there seems to be a problem with my wireles clients as well.
They don't get an adress from the LAN DHCP server. Bridged wth LAN is
enabled. My other WAP directly connected to the LAN works fine.
Sorry fot the intrusion but any help with that would also be highly

rgds, Henk
