Windows 7: Can't Connect to VPN

Can't Connect to VPN

I can't connect from my home (Windows 7 Starter) to the wife's office (WinXP Home) via a VPN connection.

I followed the directions here to setup the VPN Server on the XP system: WindowsXP VPN Server

Forwarded ports 1723, 500, 51, 50, 47

Followed the setup a new connection wizard. Can't connect with new account (made in the VPN wizard. Can't connect with an existing account on the VPN server system either. I am able to connect from another home system to the system that hosts the VPN server using pcAnywhere.

Either attempt gives an Error 800 - the VPN tunnel failed.

Any ideas on where to start looking?

I tried opening up the ports on my Windows 7 system also and that didn't help.
The rest of the article has things that I've already done - any other ideas?
