 Subject:  RE: [m0n0wall] GRE Tunnels
 Date:  Tue, 30 Mar 2004 08:02:18 +0100

I assume you mean GRE in the context of PPTP?

m0n0wall is really flexible on this, you will find most of the configuration
options at 'VPN: PPTP'. On this page you can configure m0n0wall to act as a
PPTP end point or redirect PPTP traffic to a NATed host on the inside of the
firewall. In either scenario the remote end of the tunnel needs to point at
the WAN address of the m0n0wall. Note that the PPTP redirection option
configures the correct firewall rules for the GRE and TCP protocol 1723

We are lucky enough to have some public IP subnets which are routed to our
m0n0wall. We are currently using 1:1 NAT to direct traffic from some of the
public IPs to servers with public services inside the firewall, PPTP
included. However this works just as well with no NAT using m0n0wall as a
packet filtering router (which I do at home with another public IP subnet).
In either of these scenarios you do have to configure the firewall rules
manually for GRE and TCP protocol 1723. It is not necessary to configure
PPTP redirection on the 'VPN: PPTP' page for 1:1 NAT.

Hope this helps, if not let us know.
