Blocked GRE when connected via PPTP VPN

  • Hi,

    I have a quick question.
    When I connect with a client behind the pfsense to a VPN Server via PPTP I see that a GRE packet is blocked by the firewall.
    The VPN connection is working properly.
    I have no additonal rules in place so I think it´s the default rule.
    Now my question: Should I create a rule to let the GRE packets in?

    If the VPN connection is working properly, this can probably be safely ignored. It may be that the server side is sending a GRE packet before the GRE state is active, but if the connection works normally after that log entry, I wouldn't worry about it.
