    Default Cannot connet to PPTP VPN

    I just configured a PPTP VPN. I added gre service and port 1723 (TCP) to firewall allowed services.
    But I cannot connect to VPN.
    If I stop the firewall, I can connet to VPN.
    Please ¿Can anybody help me?
    Thak you in advance.

    Make sure that connection tracking is enabled. From 'firewall-config' (GUI)...

    Options > Configure Automatic Helper Assignment, make sure it is set to 'system' (or 'yes'). Make sure that you do 'Runtime to Permanent' to save the configuration permanently as well.

    I don't know what I did with the directions you gave me, but now, I can connect to the VPN.
    Thank you very much!
