I do have routes added... added after some good suggestions. I still can't 
seem to get through the networks.  (192.168.0.xxx)

I have a static route setup in monowall for the LAN IP's. I have a static 
route setup in monowall for the subnet for VPN address  (192.168.11.xxx) 
where .1 is the monowall side of pptp)

I cannot ping anything beyond monowall. No name service issue since I use 
the IP addresses to try this. I have set the clients to use default gateway 
of remote side. They should have no problem getting beyong the monowall 
machine now as I see it. However, I still cannot touch any system on the 
192.168.0.xxx network from the PPTP VPN connections on 192.168.11.xxx 

Is there any extremely verbose loging I can enable to see where the problem 
may be?

Thanks for the responses. If I can't get this going we'll have to keep using 
the blasted MS VPN services that make life even more confined and difficult. 
Not to mention keeping Bill and CO in business :(.

Hi Peter,

This does sound like a rules issue. When you setup rules for 'any' to
'any' did you do it on the PPTP tab? Can users on the LAN ping the PPTP

When you say they cannot access things, does this include pinging the
hosts you need to get to? A lot of times with PPTP there are DNS issues
that need to be resolved before users can get to shared folders and
things like that.

I've got 1.2b9 installed and running as a corp firewall and I'm trying
to setup PPTP VPN capability for it. I've follwed the docs to set up
users and some basic rules to allow 'any' connection type to 'any'
machine. When my users get connected and get their address assigned,
they then cannot access anything in the internal network at all.

The IP of monowall to our inside net is The IP range being
handed out to VPN clients is + and the IP for the
monowall's side of the PPTP is

There is an external address for the monowall box as well and I'm coming
through a switch directly to that WAN interface in my testing.

Does any one have anythoughts on how I can troubleshoot this or what I
may be missing?
