Okay, here is what I have found. I upgraded my Net4501 to 1.21 and
things started slowing WAY down. PPTP would connect and I could ICMP all
day long, 3-Way handshake went well too, but anything with a large
packet just did not pass.
I changed confiurations, restored factory defaults, went back to old
versions of M0n0wall, and etc. To no avail. I sent e-mail to this list
and got ZERO replies ;(
In a last ditch attempt, I UPGRADED my Net4501 firmware to 1.28 and
everthing went back to normal. Things just started working. Same config
as before. Everything screams (as much as a Net4501 on a 144K IDSL line

I PPTP into my M0n0. Works fine for me. You do have the PPTP firewall
rule defined, right?
My M0n0 config applicable to PPTP:
Lan IP is 10.0.3.254
WAN IP is 66.93.xx.xx
Setup PPTP mode as SERVER
Set the local PPTP IP to 10.0.3.191
Give a remote PPTP client range of 10.0.3.144-150
Filter Rule is:
Source: PPTP Clients
