Hi, i was asked by a user to enable vpn to their server in the USA, they didnt tell me any details other than that. They cam eat the worst time ever as we are in the middle of a major network revamp so we were pretty busy. so my boss told me to create a vlan for them and configure accordingly. Anyway long story short,it didnt work so i enabled all tcp inbound and outbound(obviously not the best solution-but my boss said that we didnt have time to mess around with it) Anyway it still doesnt work - is that because i only enabled tcp not udp? Thanks for your help Andy

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

The Generic Route Encapsulation (GRE) protocol is used in conjunction with Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) to create virtual private networks (VPNs) between clients or between clients and servers.

Make sure that a firewall on either end is not blocking this packet.. some firewalls do by default.
