    Hi,

    It seems that in order to use outgoing pptp (protocol PPTP) rule that allows both in/out (both) communication has to be set. If I grant outgoing only, connection hangs at "verifying username..." after initial connect. Am I missing something?

    Hm, re-tested, does not work for me. GRE packets are not allowed in from remote host (checked with wireshark). TCP 1723 comes ok. Tried to add just GRE incoming (proto 47), however rule changes to "PPTP" automatically (!?). Also, would be nice if I could switch to policy mode also through Setup/personal firewall/filtering setup/switch to ... . I have to go to advanced setup for that.
