pfsense 2.0-RC1 intermittently disconnects PPTP client session
I am testing pfsense 2.0 in a VMware virtual machine. My setup is:
Laptop (Ubuntu 10.04) pptp client
plugged into VLAN connecting to LAN side of pfsense VM
WAN connected to gig ethernet to the Internet with static IP
PPTP server (centos 5.5) on same network
I am using Ubuntu 10.04 with its built-in PPTP client. Previous experience with timeouts on firewalls led me to set the keepalive option on.
I am reporting this now because pfsense 1.2 does not show this timeout issue with everything else in the environment unchanged.
