Client and Host are XP pro machines.
Different subnet, in fact totally different networks (home) and corporate
work

I have opened the port on my home router.
When I attempt to establish a connection from work to my home machine, it
goes to "Verifying username and password" VERY quickly, then hangs there
with error: 721

I can Remote Desktop in no problem. I am supplying correct username and
passwords.
I've checked the event log on both ends and don't see anything at all
pertaining to VPN or networking in general.

I just tried supplying a junk password and it didn't complain, just hung
there still. So it's not even checking credentials yet...


Can you think of anything else to try?
