Windows 7: VPN will not connect through windows or iOS

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
VPN will not connect through windows or iOS

I really hope someone can help me with this, I have a Windows 7 x64 machine with a NETGEAR WNA3100 WiFi USB adapter. I have port forwarded my computer (1723 and 1701) and set up windows' version of a VPN server. I have configured user accounts that can access the VPN. I have configured the IPv4 connection settings inside of windows for specific ports ( My issue is neither my iPhone or Windows machines will connect to it. Using LTE/3G gives the same "server did not respond" issue. My router is a NETGEAR WNDR3400v2. Thank you to all who help
