Watchguard Firebox not accepting PPTP VPN conections

Just a few weeks ago I was able to set up my WatchGuard Firebox to authenticate PPTP VPN conections using a user database within the firebox unit itself (it does not pass PPTP authenication onto a Windows server, it can do so on its own)


In any event.

I cannot get any PPTP VPN connection going.

I've made no changes, and the other guy who knows how to edit this thing claims he made no changes.

any ideas?

Well WG can passthrough PPTP; which model of firebox you have and which version of software is the device running. Exact steps depends on model/version.

Checking settings to ensure that PPTP is indeed enabled would help.

Thank you.

PPTP was enabled. I disabled/renabled, recreated the policy and it started working again. I guess Firebox VPN stuff is just fragile..

The ssl VPN option is much more stable as I found out and the client is very small and easy to use.
