 Subject:  Possibility of Routing Net <> Net over PPTP
 Date:  Tue, 06 Feb 2007 01:32:45 +0100
Hi there,

is there a stable and reliable possibility to route between 2 Networks 
with the use of an pptp tunnel from m0n0wall to the otherside's router?

If, for some reason, the tunnel breaks down, the static route entry 
seems to be defective after reestablishing the tunnel...

Let me say it in detail, or better, show it in detail:

If I set up the static route on my m0n0 to the PPTP-peer address, 
everything (routing) works fine until it get's disconnected...

After bringing up the PPTP tunnel again, the route seems to be dead and 
runs into nirvana... Packets aren't routed anymore... So I've to disable 
this static route (delete it) and to reenable it by hand, after the 
tunnel's build. After this, the packets are routed as normal between 
m0n0wall and the other side...

Both, m0n0wall and the other sides router have static ips on their WAN 
IF... Due to limitation on the other sides router, it is not possible to 
use any other protocol than PPTP.

Another tunnel run on that m0n0wall, between itself and another m0n0, 
works fine with IPSEC. Even after losing the connection, the tunnel and 
routes are rebuild as they were before... Everything works just fine for 
that tunnel...

Is there a chance to get a stable setup by using PPTP?
