PPTP suddenly allows multiple users from same nat to dialin to same host???
Posted on 2012-03-24
So lets say I'm sitting at home and I PPTP dial-into my corporate office from a PC on my home network. Connect to some resources, and do my thing. Then later lets say I am at a different PC at home and dial-in via PPTP to my office from it, while I'm also dialed in from the other PC at home. In the past, that would not have worked - it's always been an issue with have 2 hosts behind the same NAT connected to the same external host - it would knock one or the other off the network.
Suddenly it's working though and I'm not sure why... I recently upgrade my home router to a DLINK DIR-655 which I wouldn't think would make a big difference, but is this just something that's been around now for a while and I hadn't noticed or is this weird to anyone else??
