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.

I have made a Static NAT to a LAN PC and allowed traffic from Client VPN server IP to Public Natted IP of the PC then able to connect to the VPN from the LAN but when i made dynamic NAT to the Respective Network and allowed traffic from VPN server IP to the DYnamic NAT Ip it wont connected
Is there any issue with PPTP traffic

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.
