I'm sorry I didn't pay attention tho the heading.

Do you have any hardware / software firewall installed?

Can you connect from LAN ?

Is it only WAN that you cannon connect from?

can you please run the command below and reply with the output as a text?

telnet <server IP> 1723

Example :
telnet   192.168.2.2   1723


Run this command on the server first, then on a client PC on the same lan.
