Hi Guys!

I tried to configure my pix firewall to accept PPtP. But when i try to connect there's an error on the remote pc trying to connect. The error is: The remote computer did not respond. When i try to run sh vpdn on the pix, I see the Session username is unknown, state is estabd. This error occurs when i try to access the outside interface, but when i change the config vpdn enable to inside. theres no error on the remote pc whos trying to connect. Your help is much appreciated.
