How to configure Win 2000/XP Pro as VPN host
Prior to Windows 2000/XP Pro, you must add PPTP on NT 4.0 Server to establish VPN connections. With the release of Windows 2000/XP Pro, you have the ability to run a Windows 2000/XP Pro as a VPN host. However, Windows 2000/XP Pro enables only one VPN connection at a time and requires Internet Protocol (IP).
Before you start the VPN configuration, you should have a equipment (modem, T1, Frame Relay, ADSL, or cable modem) connecting to the Internet. Also make sure you have correct TCP/IP settings on the W2K/XP.
To setup Win XP (in our case) Pro as VPN host, go to the Properties of My Network Places>Create a New Connections>Set up a Advanced Connection>Accept Incoming Connections. On the Devices for Incoming Connections dialog box, do not select any device, only click Next and check Allow Private Connections, and then click Next. On the Allowed Users dialog box, select or add all users for whom you want to enable access. The accounts have to exist on both computers that are involved in establishing the VPN connection. On the New Connection Wizard, File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks, Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and Client for Microsoft Networks should be listed as networking components. By default, Allow callers to access my local area network and Assign TCP/IP address automatically using DHCP are checked. If you would like to keep the default settings, click Next to continue. Now, the Incoming Connection icon should show on Incoming section under the Properties of My Network Places and is ready to use.

I read the guide on howtonetworking.com and it says.
A: PPTP VPN uses TCP Port 1723, IP Protocol 47 (GRE); L2TP: UDP Port 1701; IPSec: UDP Port 500, Pass IP protocol 50 and 51. Note: 47 is a protocol number and not TCP port. The protocol name is GRE. It'll make a big difference when configuring your firewall or router.
So I fowarded 1701 500 50 51, but I dont understand what it means by 47 is a protocol number and not a TCP port. How do I put that into the fowarding menu? Its getting close because it connects and all but when it gets to verifying username and password it takes about 30 seconds then says "Error 721: The remote computer did not respond. For further assistance......."

nope I called linksys and they told me a few ports to foward but still having problems connecting. I know its all set up right cause it will connect right it just wont authenticate. So I am guessing that I dont have the port open that is used to authenticate.
