How to allow hosts to connect to PPTP vpn on the internet-Cisco 2951 ISR G2
I am having this issue with connecting to a PPTP vpn server on the internet using Windows inbuilt vpn client. The connection is from the local network through a Cisco 2951 ISR G2 with Zone based Firewall to the internet. I opened ports 1723 for PPTP and 47 for GRE on the Firewall for Host X to connect to pptp vpn on the internet but the connection was not successful. Ther error message returned was Error 619:Connection was not made. I then opened all outgoing IP ports for Host X to the internet, but I still got the same problem. It seems Cisco has got a problem with Microsoft's pptp vpn. How can I get the two to work together? The problem is not on the other side of the connection because when I bypass the Cisco IOS router, vpn connection works fine. Besides opening those ports, is there anything else that I need to configure on the Firewall so that hosts on the network can connect to pptp vpn on the internet?
