Okay, so maybe it;s me but I cannot seem to figure this one out and need anyones help. I have setup a CradlePoint MBR1200 with a Sprint 4G card for a public Wi-Fi spot for users. This was setup because in the area the location is in can only get slow DSL connections.

I used a CradlePoint MBR1200 with pretty much all default settings but now, any laptop trying to connect using the Windows VPN client to connect to MY internal servers (we have some internal users on laptops who visit the site) seem to fail.

I cannot seem to see any issues as to what may be blocking the settings. Does the VPN client use a specific port on the outbound which I may somehow be blocking using the default settings?

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

On the router under Advanced  / Firewall uncheck PPTP underneath the Application Level Gateway Configuration section and save changes.   This will allow VPN traffic to passthrough.

GordHunt - I checked it and all is working. It was unchecked by default. I am assuming that when unchecked PPTP traffic cannot pass and checked it can.

Router has PPTP unchecked - looks like it needs to be checked in order for traffic to pass correctly.
