PPTP connection issues

Hi

I'm using Windows 2000 to connect over the internet to a PPTP server.

I can connect fine (with MSCHAPv2 and 128bit encryption) and the
packetcounters go up just fine.

If I ping a host on the remote network (10.108.1.1), I see traffic going
out, and comming back via the packet counters, however I never get replies
to the "ping".

Running a packet sniffer on the remote end of the connection gives the
following:

05:53:47.082375 10.108.22.2 > 10.108.1.1: icmp: echo request
05:53:47.082410 10.108.1.1 > 10.108.22.2: icmp: echo reply
05:53:48.231031 10.108.22.2 > 10.108.1.1: icmp: echo request
05:53:48.231043 10.108.1.1 > 10.108.22.2: icmp: echo reply
05:53:49.731065 10.108.22.2 > 10.108.1.1: icmp: echo request
05:53:49.731076 10.108.1.1 > 10.108.22.2: icmp: echo reply
05:53:51.231373 10.108.22.2 > 10.108.1.1: icmp: echo request
05:53:51.231385 10.108.1.1 > 10.108.22.2: icmp: echo reply

so it would appear that my packets are reaching the network at the remote
end, and are being sent back through the PPTP connection to my PC.

Question then is why is ping saying "Request timed out".

The remote network is a class A (10.108.0.0/19 subnet 255.255.224.0) and the
PPP link when its up has addresses in the range 10.108.22.1-254 (ie within
the remote subnet). The remote PPTP server proxies ARP for VPN clients.

I've attached a copy of the routing table on my PC when the connection is
up.

My guess is that it is some kind of subnetting problem, but I've no idea
what or how to fix it.

Cheers

Alex

Verify your config with one of these first two articles. One is for
"Site-to-Site VPN", the other is for "Remote Access VPN". Use the one that
fits your situation.
