Have you run into the pfsense pptp limitation? That is, only one customer (behind your pfsense NAT router) , can establish a pptp session to the same external pptp server at a time. At least, that's what the pfsense download site lists under known limitations. Tom S. - Original Message

Main problem is that to get a 120 degree pattern with 16 db of gain you have to have a razor-thin vertical arpeture (around 6 degrees). So you're probably going to have to use the two-man method you're describing to get optimum results, or use a lower-gain antenna. Tom S. - Original

We quit using monkey snot (andrews mastic) a few years ago and started using the self-vulcanizing tape, often called plumbers tape, on everything. Black silicon tape also works well but at a higher price. We put that on first, then follow up with hi-quality 3M electrical tape for protection.
