Sounds like IPNetRouter isn't doing NAT right. You should really be using something more modern than an OS 9 box for your router anyway. Options: (1) Figure out whats wrong with your obsolute router software, (2) install a newer *nix box (os x, linux, or something) and have it route for you instead, (3) spend $100 and buy a linksys router. Option #3 is defnitely the easiest way to go, though also the least sexy.

    For PPTP to work across a NAT firewall, that NAT firewall needs special code to handle PPTP specifically. An older, simple NAT firewall won't work properly.

    It's not a matter of not doing NAT right; it's a matter of trying to do NAT to PPTP when it shouldn't.
