We have a Watchguard firbox FBX1000 and behind that a domain using windows server 2003. I have just noticed that our PPTP users are being authenticated with the local Windows domain credentials.  What I mean is that if a user after logging onto their windows account and then manually connects the pptp connection using blank user name and password then the event viewer on our server says that they have successfully logged on with the windows domain credentials.

Is this by design or a security flaw in our security
