Thanks for the help, my delays are about 10s on a dialup connection so, as
you say, that's still a good result.
What do you think about entries in firewall logs, they say:
Bloccked 18:10:57.020797 PPTP 217.201.x.y, port 445 217.201.j.k, port 4001
where source port is some times 445, some times 135 or 139...
external IP (something like 217.201.x.y) has an internal reference IP (like
Last time I ommitted to say that all entries I mentioned were BLOCCKED but
PPTP VPN rules allow everithing!
Thanks for the help

I know Kristian was the one that mentioned 30s delays, but if that is what
you're seeing, then I'd look at your name resolution as being the problem.
If it's just it takes a while to show the contents of a folder, then either
that's just the way it is - Explorer transfers a large amount of data when
doing that sort of thing! Or you have a shortcut to a non-existing location
within that folder, but this would also make it slow on a LAN connection

Subject: [m0n0wall] VPN shares latency
I'm pretty a newbie in M0n0wall and I tried to use a VPN to manage local
windows shares from a remote PC. I succeed in viewing directories like
\\nameserver\specificfolder and I can also explore local domains, so I
suppose wins works good (my file server is an NT 4.0). However exploring
folders and domains requires much more time than I expect...
While entering VPN, my (variable) external IP (something like 217.201.x.y)
has an internal reference IP (like 192.168.0.80)
PPTP VPN rules allow everything from anywhere but looking at logs I can se
many request like this: 18:10:57.020797 PPTP 217.201.x.y, port 445
217.201.j.k, port 4001 TCP where source port is some times 445, some times
135 or 139...
That sounds strage to me because PPTP rules should let pass those pacchets.
What's wrong with my configuration?
Thanks in advance!
