    Does anybody have any experience setting up a PPTP VPN server on Windows Server 2003?? It seems that no matter what setting I change, at the client level, it just hangs at Verifying Username and Password. I know everything is set up properly on my router. It seems to be an authentication issue. I've set up Routing And Remote Access properly and all my policies are set up properly (to the best of my knowledge).

    I haven't had too many issues like this with Windows 2000 Server, but I know Server 2003 comes with a lot of enhanced security features and I'm sure it's something really small that I'm either doing or not doing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Just to double check, some information on how to install the Windows2003 VPN server can be found at:

    I'm not sure what clients you have or how they are configured.

    Also the router needs to be able to pass the VPN requests as well as have the appropriate port mapping done.

    Thanks for the replies. I got it working. I upgraded the firmware on my router, which gave me a port triggering function. That's all I needed to get port 47 working. It didn't even occur to me to upgrade the firmware. The router is only 2 month old. The firmware was WAY out of date. Oh well...

    Thanks for your help guys....
