You should check your MTU of your packet size. As applications like
remote desktops, etc take up large packets it's possible that they get
dropped by your tunnel because the packets are to big for some routers
where the tunnel goes by.

Subject: CIPE & MS Remote Desktop Clients
> Hi, I've got a CIPE connection between two Red Hat Linux servers
> providing a VPN across two Windows networks. Everything works fine so
> far, except for the Remote Desktop clients. When I try to connect from
> client on one side to a server on the other side (going either
> direction), the client times out with "The connection to the remote
> computer was broken. This may have been caused by a network error.
> Please try connecting to the remote computer again." I've watched the
> connection with tcpdump, and I see traffic going both to and from the
> client and server on the RDP port; and there aren't any firewall rules
> that I think would be affecting communications across the VPN.
> Has anyone seen this problem, or know what I can try to get it
