PPTP VPN Error 806

I am trying to setup a PPTP Vpn connection and no matter what I try, I keep getting error 806.

I am using a DLINK DSR-1000N.
PPTP pass through is selected.
pptp service is forwarded to the servers IP
I tried opening port 47 and pointed it to the server ip.

Any thing else I can try.

Are you forwarding to a server behind the firewall?

Tried with firewall on and off.

Tried just about everything. It must be something to do with the router, configured with a cisco router worked flawlessly with exact setup.

Something with the dlink is blocking the connection.

What is the VPN server you are connecting to?

Can you also test connecting to the VPN from the internal local network?

Have you tested from other computers and did it work?

Internal Network Connects with out any problems using the local IP.

Same problem from different pc, different location, different isp.

Do you have port 1723 natted to your sever?

Thank you for your help. I worked it out. There is a NAT filter that was blocking PPTP connections on the router that had to be disabled.

His comment had not correlation to the end result. The correct result was a setting specific to the particular router.
