WIN XP PPTP VPN behind BEFSX41

I asked this question once but I don't think I asked it right.  I have a Win XP machine with VPN server enabled on my home LAN.  I want to be able to access it from out on the road.  I've enabled the PPTP pass through.  I have a static IP for both the router and PC.  I have 2 VPN ports forwarded on the router to the XP machine.  I can't seem to get a connection.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for the response.  
In the linksys router (BEFSX41 v 1.50) there is a setting for port forwarding.  I set up to customized application ports.  One is set like this: Customized Applications = VPN, Service port = 47 - 47, Protocol = both, IP = xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx( which is the address of the XP machine,   the other is the same except the Service Port = 1723 - 1723.  The error code I get is 678.  Thanks

How about forwarding port 3389 which is remote Desktop for XP.  It should work fine.
