¿is there any other ports needed to conect to a PPTP server?  I currently have the same problems. But I have open TCP 1723 and GRE both in and out. I did a basic port monitoring and detect activity on tcp ports such as 3054,3055,3214 when trying to connect to the remote server

There may be activity on thse ports, but it is not caused by PPTP.  TCP 1723 and GRE are the only things required.

I have refined my monitoring to only packets to/from the pptp server ip.
Incoming traffic comes from tcp 1723 to tcp 2121 and viceversa
Outgoing traffic goes from tcp 2121 to tcp 1723

tcp 2121 is suposeto be a "scientia-ssdb" port.

The source port of the control connection to 1723 will be from an incremented high port >1023 to 64K.  If you monitor 10 different connections,one at a time, the source port will move around.
