Have you verified that the firewall (and any routers/switches/etc in
between) is allowing the GRE traffic through? If that's not the problem,
have you verified that the Win98 box is at the newest version of all the
patches? Also, is that a direct syslog dump, or is that grep'd for pptp?
(Could be some info that got missed by a grep.. *shrug*)
