Windows 7: VPN for downloads. Don't work!

VPN for downloads. Don't work!

My VPN worked up until midday 29/01/2010. Then connected but no flow of bytes. I thought there might be something wrong with the software but after several attempts I got suspicious. So I turned on my other ISP and found that it all works fine on ISP2. So it turns out my ISP1 is blocking my VPN.

Can they do that?
