PPTP there since in the operating system Windows NT server and Windows NT Workstation version 4.0. Computers that run these operating systems can use the PPTP Protocol to safely connect with private network as a client with remote access via the internet. PPTP can also be used by a computer that is connected to the LAN to make VPN via LAN. I've setup the port forwarding rules for PPTP on the Fios router MI424WR Gen-2 (1723 TCP + GRE) but no avail.

Mar 29, 2011 · Now, note that after the switchover to T1 I can connect to the VPN from my house instantly without any problems after making a new VPN connection on any of my random XP systems, even using the same username/password. I went so far as to delete the VPN connection on the troubled client and that didn't help.
Now on my desktop I simply cannot get the VPN client to connect to my server at work. Connection always times out on "Verifying username and password". ALL options (both advanced and regular) are exactly the same as the VPN connection on my Vista-running laptop (which connects without a problem) The first time I attempted to connect remotely over VPN, it worked like a champ.
