I am new to setting up a VPN on home/office computer (XP Prof) ....router on both ends....Is there a specific port that must be opened and forwarded on my router for it to work?...If so please let me know what port?

I followed a simple tutorial and "think" I have it set up correctly to accept incoming connects but wont connect and thought maybe requires an open port...

Thanks for any help or guidance

What router is on both ends? More specifically, what VPN protocol are you trying to use? If you are using the built-in Windows XP Pro VPN server (or any other PPTP VPN gateway) you need the following opened:

Prot 47
TCP 1723

If you're trying to setup L2TP or IPSec it's going to be a bit more involved to explain... ;)

And if there are firewalls involved, they too need to be configured properly. Make sure the machines are put in the trusted zone.
