Watchguard X500 - PPTP security

We currently have our X500 configured to allow PPTP authenticated Remote Desktop connections to a single Terminal Server.

I would like for one group of pptp users to have access to one server host, and another group of PPTP users to -only- have access to two other hosts.  

Is there any way to make this happen?

watchguard has problems with pptp, it puts alot of stress on the box.

"problems"? i doubt that.

true bilbus, if you can, use ipsec. better security anyways.

Thanks nls73m.  

I was able to figure this out on my own for the most part (wasn't as hard as I thought after all).... but the watchguard forum did produce some tips, and it's a great resource that I will use in the future.

Bilbus, I considered using ipsec when setting this up, but the built-in pptp in XP was too easy for my users to pass up.  I have not had a serious problem after a year and a half of using it.
