Re: Linux PPTP VPN server - can't map Windows shares/printers

If you don't see any drops at your firewall then think about MTU size. 
Windows shares use large maximum segment sizes and are on of the first
symptoms when you introduce a new VPN.

I currently have a Linux PPTP VPN server + NAT firewall which has been
functioning great.  However, I'm unable to map Windows shares from
Windows boxes behind the VPN/firewall server.  I've tried a few
combinations of iptables FORWARD rules for ports 137 and 139, but I
haven't had any luck.  Does anybody have any ideas?  I'd like to be
to map Windows shares and printers through the VPN.
