It's the states on your firewall in your office that will be the
problem, not the remote office. Clear your own states, and it will be

Subject: [m0n0wall] PPTP error 619

We have m0n0wall setup in our office as the only firewall, ver 1.21
I have setup a remote office with m0n0wall as well, ver 1.21
Our office network is
The remote office network is, DHCP enabled for .100 -.150
The remote office was configured with PPTP,, .192 - .254

The problem I am having is intermittent. I can connect to the remote
office with my username and password. Then I log off.

If I go to another workstation on our LAN and try to connect to the
remote office, using the same username and password, I get the error

Both workstations are using Windows 2000, and were configured by me.
There are no local firewalls running on either workstation.

Our network/firewall is nat'd, so I am aware that only one workstation
can pptp to a given pptp server....but, I have checked. There is no
one else connected to the remote office, after I log off.

Is PPTP somehow cached at the remote office?
Do I need to setup a second uid/pw for the other workstation?


Richard, Thanks. Next time we have this issue I will be sure to test this out.

On another note...Can the states "time" be changed?
Typically how long is a connection state kept before being dropped?

Thanks Again
