Hello all. I have a m0n0 box set up with PPTP and connect to it with my 
OS X.3 laptop. I have no problems with that, but I was just thinking it 
would be nice to be able to share my iTunes and shared printers via the 
PPTP connection. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like it works. When 
sniffing the traffic at home, I can see a lot of traffic that is sent 
out (which I think is rendezvous traffic) that looks similar to this

1077297608.131589 (tos 0x18, ttl 255, length: 117) 192.168.1.199.mdns > 
224.0.0.251.mdns: [udp sum ok]  0 [4q] PTR (Class 32769)? 
_printer._tcp.local.[|domain]

Is it possible to get the rendezvous traffic across a PPTP or IPsec 
tunnel?

Thanks!
Aaron
