We have an endian firewall at work and have a SBS 2003 controlling vpn. PPTP is forwarded on router to server. When i connect it from home it freezes on "Verifying username and password" and then gives me error 718.  If initially connect to another vpn connection with "Use default gateway on remote network"  enable, I can connect to my works VPN no problem. Very strange issue and i've been racking my brain to figure out whats going on .. with no luck... Any Suggestions?
