Hi Lee,

It's good to hear you have it working.  Now all I have to do is determine
what I've done wrong :-).  BTW Chris Buechler's post was from 2003, so maybe
things have changed since then.

In my case there is no connection between site1 and site2.  Each is a
separate customer with no relationship to the other.  For your own multiple,
simultaneous PPTP connections: they're from different PCs inside your
m0n0wall, right?  Let me try my hand at ASCII art (you'll see why I'm not a
famous artist):

            site1     site2
              |         |
              the Internet
                   | WAN interface
                   | LAN interface
                 |    |
                PC1  PC2
                 |    |
               userA  userB

So for your setup, you have successfully had a PPTP connection from PC1 as
client to site1 as server, and simultaneously a PPTP connection from PC2 as
client to site2 as server?
