I wrote a while back ago about the problem I was having using a dial-up
connection to my cable modem connection via PPTP. I can ping the client
machines just fine but the problem is I get dropped packets. Any
insight as to what is causing this? I have yet to try another broadband
connection to the VPN.

Yes. Did you read the little red note on the bottom of the PPTP server
setup page that says "don't forget to add a firewall rule to permit
traffic from PPTP clients!"? Something like interface: PPTP, protocol:
any, source: PPTP clients, destination: any should fit the bill.
