I am trying to establish a VPN connection with my Pocket PC, however when I enter my user name and password, I revceive the following message 'VPN Server Problems. Veryify your username and password and try again.' I have checked and made sure that I have allowed access to the required user name & port 3389 is open. Does anyone have any ideas as to what's wrong?

PPTP VPN required TCP Port 1723 to be forwarded on a firewall/NAT/router *AND* GRE Protocol 47
traffic to be passed. Some firewall/NAT/routers call that "PPTP Pass Through" or "VPN Pass Through"
or require Port 47 to be open manually (with NO protocol assigned) like my Buffalo WBR-G54. Here is
a small page that details how I had setup a PPTP tunnel into one of my XP Pro boxes...

TCP Port 3389 is only used for the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and is *NOT* used for PPTP VPN.

That makes no sense. Port 47 has nothing to do with GRE passthru.

All I am saying is with the Buffalo WBR-G54 that you manually forward/open Port 47 but do *NOT*
specify a protocol. You also need to forward/open TCP Port 1723. Its apparently a design decision
made by the manufacturer. There is *NO* "PPTP Pass Through" or "VPN Pass Through" setting on that
router. It does work...:-)

Then what Buffalo did was to anticipate those who would confuse
protocol 47 with port 47 and rig things to undo the confusion. Very
clever.

I wonder what you would call such a gambit? Perhaps we should call it
"microsofting". Buffalo microsofted the problem away.

That is what we have to look forward in the future - all software will
become microsofted.
