Microsoft VPN thru PIX Firewall

I have an interesting problem. I use a PIX 501 in my Home Office. He does all my static translations and NATing for what I need from the public.

I have A Windows 2003 server on my inside network. I have him statically NATed thru the PIX for Web and Term. Services.

I set up the Routing and Remote Access hte other day, and launched a connection on my inside network to test the VPN functionality, and it worked fine.

I configured my PIX at that point with 500 open for ISAKMP, and port 1723 open for PPTP, I also have GRE enabled in.

For whatever reason, when i try to launch the VPN connection to my public address from a remote site to connect to the VPN server, it never makes it.

Do I need to open / enable anything else on the PIX??


Re: Microsoft VPN thru PIX Firewall

to permit pptp, acl wouldn't work. do "fixup protocol pptp 1723", however, this command introduces with os 6.3(3).
