I have configured a VPN connection with SBS 2003 and the linksys WAG54GS.  The router has VPN passthrough enabled and I have forwarded port 1723.  However when trying to login the connection gets to user name and password and no further.  If I set to DMZ the VPN works fine.  Please advise

I believe your router doesnt actually have a VPN built into it, but VPN pass through so my first question is what VPN software are you using?  I would bet that you have the wrong port opened up or need to open another port.
