   That doesn't seem to be it -- I tried again with those packets allowed,
   and it went through fine.  Besides, I'm not sure how useful netbios
   packets are when you're establishing a pptp session.

   Done.  Still no joy, but I did try a tcpdump, and found these:

21:52:24.022702 gre-proto-0x880B (gre encap)
21:52:27.032702 gre-proto-0x880B (gre encap)
21:52:30.042702 gre-proto-0x880B (gre encap)

   Any hints here?  Does the pptp server need to be handling these gre
