VPN problems on Androdi (PPTP)

Last Modified: 2012-05-11

I am having problems connectiong my Android device (Samsung Galaxy S2) with MS Windows Server 2003 (small business premium version) with VPN.
I am using PPTP protocol. I have open required ports on firewall (tcp 1723 and gre). Also let me say that connection is working over notebook (windows 7) and mobile device (windows mobile os).

I dont know why my android device cant connect :(
I dont see anything in logs (windows server, router). Also android device doesnt say much about why it cant connect - it just says that it cant and that the firewall is blocking it. But as I said other devices work and firewall doesnt report any problems.

Thanks for suggestions!
