Archived from groups: alt>os>linux>smoothwall (more info?)

i work for a small company that is running and windows 2003 small
business server that also serves as our vpn server. our firewall is
the Smoothwall 2.0 (free version, not that it makes a difference) and
we are trying to get it working where it will accept vpn packets and
forward them to the server (normally smoothwall only accepts other
smoothwall connections, but we want non-smoothwall connections as well)

so we have the instructions on how to set up the smoothwall to work
with the vpn, but we get the error
"can't use -A with -A"

we are currently port forwarding port 1723 (gre traffic) to the
server...could that be conflicting with the smoothwall vpn fix we are
doing?

all ideas, comments, suggestions appreciated

port TCP 1723 is *NOT* GRE (ip prot. 47) traffic.

I you want smoothwall to simply forward your PPTP traffic, then :

1) Forward port TCP 1723 to the server.
2) Forward GRE traffic to the server.
3) do not configure smoothwall's VPN.

Last time i saw smoothwall, id did *NOT* support GRE routing via the
interface. You need to do that manually with iptables.

However, ipcop does that nicely via the web interface.
