Allowing Windows XP PPTP VPN Through 877w IOS

Unanswered Question
Jan 17th, 2009


I have seen various posts relating to this issue but I still can't resolve this, all I want to do it to allow an XP machine to connect to a remote PPTP VPN Server.

I have a zone firewall set up on my 877 and configured "inspect pptp" and also allowed ACLs for GRE through but still get the same issue.

The PC hangs on verifying username and password, without the firewall active it goes straight in

I have the latest IOS.

Please help if possible

Do you have ESP and UDP allowed through your ACL also? Another thing to do would be to look at your logs. See what traffic is being denied, and then start opening those ports up.
