Dear armstrongwar,
I belive that you are using Microsoft PPTP Server. Make sure that Port 1723 and GRE Protocal 47 is open. Hope that you have given allow Dial in access to the user id with which you are testing.

Use Domainname\username and password and check whether it is connecting

Cheers!

In active directory users and computers, in the user's profile, on the dial-in 'tab' make sure you have checked "allow access".
