Fail to connect with VPN to Remote Access Service on Server 2012R2

I have been asked to establish a remote vpn connection via a WAN Miniport (PPTP) from external Windows clients to my Companys Server 2012R2.

I have installed this role on a local 2012R2 server and have set the Zyxel router up to NAT port 1723 + 47 from Wan to LAN pointing to the local ip of the server.
I also have configured the actual users for allowing remote access.

(I have followed these guidelines: http://www.thomasmaurer.ch/2014/01/how-to-install-vpn-on-windows-server-2012-r2/)

I have set up a WAN miniport on a laptop.

If I try to connect from my LAN it opens up instantly. However If I try this from the WAN side it fails with no futher reason.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

have a look at your Zyxel log it should tell you whats happening with the packets..
Open the log and from the WAN side connect the VPN

Please provide the logs for further analysis
