I've recently installed FMGT 2010 as firewall. Every few days, we connect to the head office via VPN client. But, the VPN clients are inside the LAN connecting to External but they need to pass FMGT 2010 to get out.

So I created the below Access Rule in FMGT:

Protocol: PPTP (also tried all outbound protocol w/out success)

From: Internal

Destination: External

The problem is the VPN clients cannot bypass FMGT to connect to External VPN server. Also, I checked the log report and the 'default rule' is denying the "NetBios Name Service" and it is picking up some unidentified IP address etc.  

I don't know how to get around with this.

Appreciate any help please.
