Most of the freeware versions of person firewalls do not allow outbound
VPN connections. You might need to buy their pro version.

AS fot what ports and protocols PPTP uses, you can get that information
many places on the web. Basically, you need to allow these *outbound*
from each device, and inbound on the PPTP server:

1) TCP port 1723 
2) IP protocol 47 (GRE).

I've got a PPTP VPN established between 2 Win2K machines using RRAS.
like to run TinySoft Personal Firewall on the VPN server but when I do I
can't make the needed connections over the VPN and I can't get TinySoft
tell me what's trying to connect.

Anyone else tried this?
