Thanks again for the reply. I had no trouble getting IPSec working 
(m0n0-to-m0n0) - it's reliable and doesn't cause me any trouble.

I'm only NATing 4 services and none of them involve port 47 or 1723. I 
did try NATing 1723 to my PPTP server address - it made no difference so 
I removed the NAT rule again. I'm using the internal m0n0 PPTP server 
without RADIUS auth by the way.

My LAN itself doesn't have many boxes on - two Linux servers, a Win2k 
Pro machine and a WinXP Pro machine so it's not like there's a lot that 
could be going wrong there.

FWIW - what platform are you running on Jeff? Is there anyone else 
running PPTP on generic-pc?
