We have just replaced our old DLink router with a DLink 2740B. THe previous router had the DMZ set up and worked fine but the new one will not allow outgoing VPN connections from the LAN. Everything else is OK (incoming mail, incoming VPN, etc) apart from the outgoing VPN.

The connection hangs at the "Verifying username and password" stage and the local machine records error 629 which is (Message: The modem (or other connecting device) was disconnected due to link failure.)

We can VPN out using a computer linked directly to the router, it is just from the LAN that it doesn't work.
