OSX Server Users/VPN?

I'm setting up a VPN at my work to route to OSX Server.  I think that I've got the router/everything else properly configured - because when I attempt to login to the VPN I see results popping up in the logs.

One thing I can't do, however, is log in.  I keep getting authentication failures - and in the logs it says:

CHAP peer authentication failed for <username>

I've attempted using variations like username and domain\username format - to no avail.  I was reading somewhere that the VPN user list is different than the normal user list?  Any idea what might be happening?

What VPN router are you using?  This may be a basic question but I need to verify if you have created the CHAP authentication/account on both routers to accept connection from each other and ensure that you're using the correct credentials?

The router is a Ubiquiti EdgeRouter Lite.

There's a VPN section in the admin there - but I've left it alone because OSX Server has a VPN section in it and figured I'd go for that.  What I've done on the router is opened up the firewall so that it accepts traffic on the relevant ports...and set up the port forwarding.

Here's the config screen for that -

Do you see anything in the router log when your MAC is trying to connect?  The log should show the reason of why the authentication was rejected.  Also, for testing avoid using complex password and use a very simple password instead.  Just to see if it works.
