Hi,

Setup PPTP vpn on pfsense 1.2.3 with no problems.  Mac clients can connect fine to local resources and surf the web.   The Mac snow leopard PPTP client has an option to "Send all traffic over VPN connection" which I want to take advantage of.  When I check the "send all traffic.." box and save, I am unable to browse the web when connected to VPN (from outside the LAN obviously).  

Is there anything I can do/check to troubleshoot?

Thanks in advance.

I ended up solving my problem.  I wanted to update this in case others have the same issue.  I had added a firewall rule to allow all traffic from the PPTP connections, but I only added it for TCP.   I changed that rule to both TCP/UDP and everything works as desired.   I am not 100% why this fixed it, but I assume it is because it was blocking UDP traffic for DNS lookups.
