I have had a vpn setup working very well for the last year on a windows 2000 box, I just installed exchange 2003 along with gfi mail security, after the install my vpn connection was still working then all of a sudden out of know where it stops, and hangs on verifing user name and password.  I stoped the gfi mail security service and tested again with no luck, my RDP connection works perfectly, my outlook web access works perfectly, but no vpn . Nothing has been done to the router, the ports are still being forwarded to the inside lan. I have reset the power on all devices, still the same,  any thoughts

If you are using L2TP with certificates, perhaps the certificate expired.

L2TP is not used, actually there are no L2TP ports configured, just using PPTP.

If it's just PPTP then you may as well clear out the configuration and start again. You can get a PPTP VPN configured on Windows RRAS in about 15 minutes!

Quicker than trying to figure out why it stopped in the first place.

My Bad,
I thought I changed my email on ths site to my regular account,I dont check this account very often anymore as you can see, But to answer the statement by jamesDS, I had rebuilt the routing an remote access server nd still can not connect through PPTP, Hangs on verifiing username and password, The issue is due to the ISP that the company had changed to, There is a problem with the airband router not letting GRE Pass through.

I will award the points to JamesDS for replying
