Hi Guys,

I am trying to configure a Fortigate 50GB to pass through VPN requests to a Microsoft 2003 RASS server. Any idea on the best way to do this? I am having no luck.

Yes, you need to open up port 1723 TCP, GRE and ICMP
1723 is used to establish the tunnel.
GRE (Generic Route Encapsulation) is a protocol, it is IP protocol 47 that is used to actually tunnel the traffic.
ICMP needs to be opened up - I found that one out the hard way.  Dunno why it needs it but it wouldn't establish the connection without it.

Ah, the ICMP might have got me. I'll try this.

Nope, that didn't seem to work.

I recall that the way I resolved it previously was to set up a packet capture on the device, then open up IP ANY/ANY then capture the traffic.  Then you'll know exactly what protocols are being used to establish the VPN.
It could also be a firewall on the box you are connecting into. Most domain computers will block any IP traffic that originates outside its own subnet.
