Hi

If it is the standard OS, Click Firewall > Access Rules

Click on the Add button. For Action tick `Allow`
Service: PPTP
For Source choose `WAN`. you can either enter the Fixed ip address of the location you want to VPN from alternatively if you leave the * in the box you will be able to VPN from Anywhere

For Destination choose `LAN` and then enter the IP address of your Server into the first box and then click ok

This should be it working

If it is the Enhanced OS let me know and i will post you the details

Regards

Ross

OK, bit more complicated :)
Click on Firewall > Access Rules, Click on Wan to Lan Setting

Click on Add new rule, for service choose `PPTP`
For Source, either choose `any` or `create a new network object` if you are connecting from multiple locations you can leave this at any, if you are specifying the object, zone assignment is wan, type is host and then enter the wan ip you are connecting from

Destination will be the Server, you may need to add an address object for this, Zone Assignment is LAN, Type is host, then enter the ip of the server
then click ok

Click on Network > NAT policies. Scroll down to the bottom and click `add`

Original source will either be `any` or the network object you created
Translated source is `Original`
Original Destination is WAN Primary IP
Translated Destination is <Your Server Object you created>
Original Server is PPTP
Translated Service is Original

Then click ok and this should be you sorted

Make sure your NAT is setup properly.  I also added service ports for port 1723 and 47.  Added those and the PPTP to the rules and it works great.
