Do you have remote desktop enabled on the Win 7 box?  If so, is it enabled for everyone (all protocols) or just secured RDP (the newer version)  You should probably enable for all for now.

Does initiating the VPN session from the new Win7 system connect successfully?
Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Check if the IP address of the VPN client is allowed on the remote Win 7 to which the client connects. The firewall of win 7 is much more strict than on winxp

By GPO the windows firewall is off. I can rdp to the box using my admin username/password.
