 Re: PPTP Server

I also like using IPFILTER_DEFAULT_BLOCK. Its much easier and more secure in my opinion (less mistake prone anyways). But I don't use it any longer now that my box is 14 hours away. If I made a mistake in my rules before, the box was just a console cable away, but now not having my rules loaded due to an error is disaster.
For a while I used to set a shutdown for a few minutes and apply my test ruleset from a seperate file, if it failed, it was just a few minutes until the restart. Yeah I know that is not a good practice :), but it worked since the box was not really used for anything important. I pretty sure there is an easier/safer way to do it but I have not looked into it. Any ideas.
