Hello, im trying to set up a NAT rule for a PPTP VPN tunnel.

I have set it up like this:

Source: untrust

Dest. zone: untrust

Source address: Any

Dest. address: lets say

Service: any

Source Translation: None



Security Rule


Source address: Geo Location:NO,EU


Application: PPTP(iv tried this and..)

Service: tcp-1723.


I can see in the traffic in the traffic logs, so there are signs of the traffic. 

This is the logs from the PPTP server/router:

What are you trying to NAT?  The description has the same destination translation as destination address.
