Dear FreeBSD PF users,
We have Cisco FWSM software v2.3 which doesn't pass PPTP traffic due to it not
being able to extract the GRE session information. Grrr.... Enterprise grade my
Nevertheless, I am intrigued to see if I can provide an alternate route for a
customers PPTP connection through a FreeBSD router.
I'll VLAN interface on to their LAN, NAT as usual to a public IP, but I would
like to inquire (before I commence my setup) if...
1. FreeBSD NAT (PF) will pass PPTP
2. if (1), will it support multiple PPTP sessions (multiple clients to common
remote VPN server)
Many thanks for any suggestions etc. much appreciated.
