NetGear DG834GT + VPN Issues - 800 Error

Hey there,

I am using Windows XP Pro SP 2 and have a Netgear DG834GT router.  I am trying to connect to a VPN.  I have used the Windows Network connection wizard, inputting the account name, username and password.

When I try to connect, I always get the 800 error 'Unable to establish the VPN connection...'.

I'm wondering if I need to configure my Router?

I am using pretty much out-of-the-box firewall settings:

Outbound Services - any service - allow always

Inbound Services -  any service - block always

Any help would be greatly apprciated,
