[pptp-server] PTY, GRE prob

Yes.  There is no firewall in between these 2 machines - they're on the 
same hub and the Linux machine has the default policies of ipchains - 
accept everything.  I'm just trying to demonstrate that it works before 
putting on a real firewall.  It really has me stumped, although I feel 
slightly better to see that others seem to have similar ones.  I hope we 
can all get it solved soon!

The Win98 box is my laptop and it's up-to-date in that the 
"Windows-Update" thingy on the start menu says there are no updates I need 
at present, and also the Thinkpad "IBM Update" says it's up-to-date.  Yes 
this stuff is straight from syslog.

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*)
