Ok..i have a 1841 router with 12.4(19) and we use MS VPN client to connect to one of our clients. If i use from home, it works fine and a couple other sites it works fine, but at the office behind our 1841 router it doesn't. Talked to the clients firewall service providers and they said it uses GRE over IP sec? not sure if i need to open pptp or something to allow return packets through.. What info can i give you guys that will help you help me? It contacts the site, gets to verifying user/pwd and then fails

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It sounds like you may need to set up port forwarding in your router. Is this VPN solution in your network or something outside?

    What you need to do is open up protocol 47...not TCP, not UDP...but IP protocol 47 as discussed here.
