Technically correct, but misleading.  PPTP is an example of a VPN
protocol that does not play well with NAT.  Doesn't matter if it's
m0n0wall or anything else.

And many firewalls break or block outbound GRE in their default NAT
configuration, hence breaking PPTP.

This has come up several times before, and is still the same.  I'm not
aware of any open source software that does this.  If you can find
something specific that could be a solution, post here and let us
know.  It would most likely make its way in, unless it's a real mess.

uPnP is this. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Upnp
not at all related to what you're talking about.
