vpn server behind suse firewall

Hi all,

i have installed suse linux 9.2 on my new server.
It's a server directly connected to the internet so it has only one nic.
The NIC has got a direct internet ip.

I have the suse firewall 2 up and running.

I want to allow the service pptp on port 1723 to pass the firewall.
I want to connect from any windows machine to this vpn server.

Services like SSH or SAMBA need to work over/through this vpn.
When i open up port 1723 i can connect to the vpn server but there is no traffic possible over this connection.

What am i doing wrong?

Also ip port 47 GRE is forwarded and 1723 udp too but still no go.

Without the firewall everything is working fine.

Any ideas?

you need to add rukles to the firewall to allow icmp and samba, etc,etc, packets from clients connected via the vpn which should have it's own IP subnet
