Hey, I have read your post regarding this problem. Is it still an issue or have you give up MT? Have you done any PPP sniffing when the connection establish? BR, Paul Yes it is a serious code design flaw, but I haved worked around it by not using the pix!! Not happy, but I can't see them fixing it....

why are you setting `remote address` at all? this parameter means `the address that the server will give the client`. so if you set it to the same as server's - logically you end up with the same IP on both the server and the client. no wonder it doesn't work :) read the manual! remote-address (IP ...

I've noticed the double slashes for some time now...I don't think that's the issue. Anyways, no need to get nasty about it - be happy everything is working again :)
it is definately the issue,
when I take it out manually it works fine
Seems like it affects only some browsers?

Further to this sorry saga.... after analysing the traffic I find that the MT having set up a tcp conection with the vpn using 1723 and 32779 decides to send it's echo request on 32780 WRONG port. The server doestn't respond and the tunnel times out. This bug only appears when the connect-to address...

if your the client just leave the profile ips blank - it will learn them from the server.

PPTP client bug identified. Workaround anybody??

The Mikrotik PPTP client can't handle having the connect-to address being the same as the remote-address. The problem was first encountered when connecting a MT to a pix that implements this architecture. I can reproduce this connecting to an XP machine running the MS VPN (Incoming connections) and ...

The IP Scan is not a ping based scan but an ARP scan (layer two coupling). Some client firewalls detect this as mal behaviour and refuse to answer the call when their number comes up. If you have empty IPs down low then that gives the clients plenty of time to deduce scan behaviour and clam up prior...

When trying to connect to a Cisco 506e via internet, the connection fails after keepalive timeout. (it was probably dead or misrouted already although all the IPCP exchanges went fine.

Im am certainly not an expert with the MT, but I would either slowly remove firewall rules until it connects or remove all and add one at a time until it failed.
