Hello!
W'are rtrying to get a VPN connection working between an WindowsXP PC 
(standard client) and Monowall 1.3b9. SOme times it works but from 
another location it does not work.

My syslog shows:
Mar  6 14:29:06 green mpd: [pt0] LCP: not converging
Mar  6 14:29:06 green mpd: [pt0] LCP: parameter negotiation failed
Mar  6 14:29:06 green mpd: [pt0] LCP: state change Req-Sent --> Stopped
Mar  6 14:29:06 green mpd: [pt0] LCP: LayerFinish
Mar  6 14:29:06 green mpd: pptp0-0: clearing call
Mar  6 14:29:06 green mpd: pptp0-0: killing channel
Mar  6 14:29:06 green mpd: [pt0] PPTP call terminated
Mar  6 14:29:06 green mpd: [pt0] link: DOWN event
Mar  6 14:29:06 green mpd: [pt0] LCP: Close event
Mar  6 14:29:06 green mpd: [pt0] LCP: state change Stopped --> Closed
Mar  6 14:29:06 green mpd: [pt0] LCP: Down event
Mar  6 14:29:06 green mpd: [pt0] LCP: state change Closed --> Initial
And the connection never succeeds. Icannot see which parameter is not 
'converging'. before this closedown I see several messages about MRU 
1400, MRRU 1600 etc.
Is there a way to debug the setup of a VPN a bit better?
