    Hello to all!
    I've passed my first MCP exam early this year, and I
    should face 'the beast' pretty soon (I've already passed
    210 and 215), so I can continue the road to MCSE.
    I just found out about this Newsgroups (MCSA & MCSE) this
    week, but I'm not going to ask about study guides and all
    that crap (like my foreign fellas).
    The thing is: I got a W2k server behind a linux box, and I
    want to establish a pptp VPN from outside.
    I've already configured filters for port 1723 and GRE
    protocol, but I still get ERROR 721.
    Can anyone help?

    Thanks a lot,

    pete

    One quick question, is what do you have on the other side of the linux box.
    If you are using the Linux box as a firewall, or proxy, and you are using a
    Cisco 678 as your connection, then you need to open the cisco completely.
    They are not very good at VPN's. I found this after a week or two of
    exhaustive work, only to find I was going to have to setup and ISA server,
    and open the Cisco. Since then it works fine.

    Pete,
    L2TP is a whole different animal. You might want to continue battling
    with PPTP first.
