Question about D-Link RangeBooster G WBR-2310 Wireless Router (WBR2310)
I am trying to setup up a VPN so I can access my office XP Pro machine from home where I have an XP Home laptop. I have setup the XP Pro VPN server and the XP Home VPN client. I have opened port 1723 in both Windows firewalls. I have forwarded port 1723 (using D-Link's PPTP) in the WBR-2310 to my XP Pro server. From the laptop it seems I can see the machine, the status windows goes past connecting, but hangs in the login status and eventually times out. I have tried both the Administrator account and the personal account. Any idea what I am missing? Thank you.
I had exactly the same problem. The solution is to set up pptp as a virtual server pointing to the lan ip of the server. Port forwarding only forwards the port but not the GRE protocol (pptp passthrough)

PPTP is also using GRE protocol. GRE is a level 4 protocol (IP protocol number 47), just like TCP (IP protocol number 6).
First, in your WBR-2310 configuration, make sure that "Enable PPTP Passthrough" is checked in Advanved > Firewall settings. Then, make sure that you have also authorized GRE packets in your firewalls.
