I do not use this - I use NCP Secure Entry. So I am not sure if I can help.

1. Is this PPtP or IPsec?
2. Please enable logging on the firewall and see what error you get in the log when you try to connect.
3. Do you have the firewall on a different subnet than your client machine?

Can you ping from the outside world to vpn.companyname.com? (or just internally) did you set up that entry on the DNS? Is the DNS connected to the outside? can you ping the ip address from the outside?

I used to use Tweakmaster in days of XP and the tweaks did not do anything significant. TCP/IP has gotten better in newer operating systems. If you do make changes, make explicit notes so you can reverse them, and of course, TCP/IP resets any tweaks.
