1) You didn't mention it, but I assume you added a "PPTP VPN" rule
to allow PPTP traffic.
2) You might try doing a Diagnostics -> Reset state, (or rebooting)
NAT has an issue with non-UDP/TCP (like GRE) traffic, so resetting
things might fix it. Your router at home might have the same NAT
'gre' memory problem.
