    Here is a better link at the same site that has all settings with screen shots even.http://www.helmig.com/j_helmig/rastcpip.htm#client You do have to have the right TCP/IP settings     (correct IP address) for your server setup. Also you have to startup the RAS service on the server to wait for an incoming call. It's very similar to PCAnywhere, where you have it wait for an incoming connection.

  If you are dialing into an RRAS box check out
Also check for IP conflicts. Allocated IP's must be free for use.

I'll bet there are more than 100 different ways to setup a VPN. This is a pretty wide open task.

Need lots more information.
XP Pro?
How is the other machine connecting to the Internet?
What are the capabilities of the D-Link? Is it performing NAT for you and your server has a private IP address?
This might get you going:
