PPTP depends on being able to send GRE packets (not just tcp or udp) through
your firewall.  If the DSL router at the remote office does not forward GRE
traffic through the NAT firewall, and cannot be configured to do so, you will
only be able to use PPTP from that location if you get additional public IP
addresses from the DSL provider.
