VPN RRAS Server - Error 741 - No clients are able to connect


I have recently setup a windows 2008 R2 server and installed the RRAS role.

I have configured VPN access to allow PPTP connections.

I am currently having an issue at the moment when trying to connect to the VPN and I am receiving the following error message "VPN error 741 - The local computer does not support the required data encryption type"

I have looked through alot of articles online and they talk about applying a registry fix to the host server which I have tried and also changing the security properties on the client VPN to set the VPN connnection type to PPTP and change the encryption level to maximum which also has not resolved the issue.

I cannot see anywhere with in the RRAS configuration where I can set the encryption type.

Has anyone come across this before?

Its Windows 7.

Yeah Ive done the above article but it made no difference. I have tried connecting three different client machine and all receive the same error so im thinking this is more to do with the host server.

Please ensure you have latest service pack of win 7 (updates, Patches etc)

Hi tthe above didnt make any difference still the same issue.

I am wondering if i need to make any configuration changes as the RRAS server is a Virtual server and not a physical one.
