Re: PPTP connection drops when user has Linksys wireless rou

Hello pbconsulting, This topic has not had discussion in a while, it seems that Mikrotik is ignoring this issue. I did find two solutions, some might consider them to be workarounds rather than solutions but I think that solution one is a much better method of handling VPN. 1. Let the Mikrotik route...

Re: PPTP connection drops when user has Linksys wireless router

macbeton; To reply to your post, I have already established that other (non-Linksys) firmware DOES resolve the problem, however I can't expect normal users who barley know what a router is to replace the shipped firmware on thier router with an open source firmaware to make it work with our Mikrotik...

Re: PPTP connection drops when user has Linksys wireless router

Well I finally found some time to get back to this; I added the forward filter rules and tested again with the same results. I also updated the Mikrotik OS to 3.19.

Re: PPTP connection drops when user has Linksys wireless router

I am using version 3.17 with NAT to a Microsoft 2003 RRAS server and I have tried with and with out GRE. Perhaps I need some help with your advice "That is if NAT for both GRE and TCP 1723 are configured properly. Adding rules to allow all "related" and "establed" connections will help too (connecti...

Re: PPTP connection drops when user has Linksys wireless router

The typical setup that fails is: PPTP client is behind Linksysy router (we have tried various models with various firmware versions, the Linksys router works with Linux OS installed instead of Linksys OS) Our router is Mikrotik version 3 OS using NAT to pass 1723 to our PPTP server Our PPTP server i...

Re: PPTP connection drops when user has Linksys wireless router

We have checked for the latest firmware on the Linksys routers but it did not make a difference. We have several clients with Mikrotik routers and various use configurations and the only thing that has solved the problem at any of the locations is to move the Mikrotik routers back to version 2.

Re: PPTP connection drops when user has Linksys wireless router

I have not figured this out yet; I have been sending the users with the problem to a router running version 2. I have considered adding Radius and using the PPTP server on the router. If you find a solution I sure would like to know.

PPTP connection drops when user has Linksys wireless router

I have a Mikrotik router that NAT's a Microsoft RRAS server at each of my offices. I recently upgraded the OS on 2 of the Mikrotik routers to 3.6 from 2.9 and began seeing the following problem: Users who have Linksys wireless routers at home can no longer maintain a VPN connection through the route...
