I'm not using 128-bit auth. That's a far-off dream at this point ;)
There are no IP clashes. My DHCP runs from 192.168.0.200-249 and my PPTP
block has been 192.168.0.96/28, amongst other values (including non-LAN
There are no client firewalls (save the local m0n0wall).
The PPTP firewall rule could not be simpler. It is literally Pass any ->
any for any protocol.
User accounts have been checked and re-checked, plus assigned with
static IPs. No dice.
Are you using IPSec or any of the other features I mentioned? Have you
had to do anything special for the PPTP connection in XP?
PS: Please keep replies on-list (Reply All).
