    I have a Windows2003 box with routing and remote access installed as a
    remote access VPN. I have enabled 4 ports for PPTP and L2TP as shown
    in the following screenshot.


    I have a Symantec Firewall appliance attached to my internet
    connection, to which my 2003 server is attached. What I am wondering
    is what ports I need to open in order for external vpn connections to
    be able to reach thier destinations.

    I tried the obvious by this screenshot and opened 124-127 but that
    obviously didnt work.

    Any insight?

    Thanks much in advance!

    well I have PPTP running and I just setup port forwarding on my router
    to forward port 1723 to the VPN server.

    That should do the trick
