    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.

    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
