So you opened up the correct ports?
Did you try to disabled the statefull firewall in the VPN client?
Is anything showing in the logs of the ASA?

It's most likely going to be the client side firewall. Have you disabled the local software firewall on the client PC getting this error? Let us know.

Ah, so you are trying to connect from the outside to the inside? If that is the case you will need a one to one static. The GRE protocol needs that, it cannot be tunneled through a port in tcp (it's a whole different protocol).

What is GRE Protocol , what is the Purpose of that..Do we need to allow Gre port exclusively for inbund connections . is GRE is a  TCP or UDP traffic.

Will you briefly explain about that

GRE is a protocol just like TCP and UDP so it's NOT a port on Tcp/udp.
