RV042 with a MAC

Hi I have an RV042 router and I am trying to use my VPN over it.  If I use Quick VPN from a PC I can connect to my server no problem. If I try to connect to the router via PPTP i can connect with out a problem.   However, when I go to type the address of ther server it won't connect.  I know I am connected to the RTV042 through the pptp because if I enter the IP address of the router I get the settings menu.  Does anyone have any ideas what I am doing wrong?  Why can't I connect to my server?  Thanks in advance for your help!!

If the QuickVPN client is working why not use it. Simpler, and it's IPSec encryption is a little more secure.

However.......
-Do the remote and local sites use a different subnets? They need to.
-Is the Windows firewall, or any other software firewall enabled on the server? Probably not if you can connect with the QuickVPN.
-When you say you cannot connect do you mean by name or IP.  If not by name try using the IP, such as \\192.168.0.123\ShareName   If this works it is a name resolution issue and we can address that.
