Hello acole10000,

PPTP connections should log the usernames that were authenticated to the security log on the RAS server?


You can trace the IP Address of the unit, you may have a clue.

There are many websites that will give you physical locations of ip address ranges.

Then you have to contact the ISP if you believe that the access is fraudulent.

You could have a hacker if you don't know who it is.
I would setup traces and track them down.
