RRAS Connection problems

I am trying to configure a Windows 2000 RRAS VPN server. I went through all the steps in the Microsoft article on how to set it up. I am able to connect to it through my lan, but all clients outside, accessing through the internet are not able to connect. I checked to see that port 1723 is open and it is. I am connected to the Internet through a Cisco 1720 router.  Any ideas why I can't connect outside the office?

Are you forwarding the port from the router to the VPN server?  Can you post a sanitized Cisco config?

The router is strictly a passthrough. We use XO Communications and they set it up originally. We had a server crash and I am rebuilding it.  I actually think there is a router hardware issue, but wanted to check on my networking setup first.  I used the RRAS wizard to set it up. I am also wondering if it is a DNS issue or something set up wrong on the multihomed network cards.

What do you mean by a sanitized Cisco config?

If you can connect from anywhere on the LAN then the setup is correct on the server.  If you can't connect from the outside then the router is blocking or not forwaridng the ports correctly or to the correct IP address.

A sanitized Cisco config is a copy of the config file you have edited so if you post it here no one can get any important info like passwords, external IP's etc, so they can get access to your system.

Unfortunately, the Cisco router is provided by XO and I have no access to it. But, in the interim I disabled all non-microsoft services and uninstalled a spyware/virus software and it is now working. Thanks for the help. I will accept your answer because it did confirm that I had installed RRAS correctly.
