I have POPTOP setup and working great but I'm having troubles with iptables.
If I open all ports then I can connect fine with a client.  But if I open
only ports 1723 and protocol (47)GRE I can't connect.  Then client gives me
an Error: 678 The remote computer did not respond within a reasonable amount
of time.  I'm not sure why this is happening but I would like to close
everything but the PPTP ports since that is its sole purpose.  Anyone have
any rules that work great for you?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
