Using W2K as a client to a 1.21 m0n0, it works fine most of the time.
The rest of the time I get timeouts. However, if I kill off an IPSEC
connection from another remote site that's connected to the m0n0, the
PPTP server mysteriously springs into life. This I can live with until I
get around to troubleshooting it, but some people probably can't.

Going back a few versions, I always used the same subnet as the LAN for
the PPTP clients, but found this caused more trouble than it was worth -
try using a different subnet. The server will need to have its IP on
this subnet too, so enable PPTP server and use something like and I also have Require 128-bit set.

I have a 1.2b3 out there that works flawlessly, btw.

I have it on about 20 machines.  It works fine on most.  It fails on
(I connect fine, and get out to the internet, but can't seen anything on
LAN)  Usually, if I clean up the config, it starts working, but a few 
systems it just won't work.  One day I may look into why. :-)  Cleaned
config enclosed.  *** replaced all my sensitive stuff.  This config does
use captive portal, but many of mine do.
