I am a home user trying to use a PPTP VPN connection from Portugal to the UK and this is a new laptop. Frustratingly the connection worked initially but I must have changed something while setting up all my stuff on here since then and I now get error 807 when trying to connect. I have checked the internet and tried various solutions suggested but nothing has worked.
I can ping the VPN server but when I try to telnet to it via port 1723 it fails even though I have disconnected the Windows firewall and disabled AVG.
I only have limited IT knowledge but would really appreciate any suggestions that would help.
