When you set up a VPN connection in Windows 7, the default setting for Type of VPN is Automatic. With this default configuration, Windows 7 uses the SSTP (Secure Socket Tunneling Protocol) for the first connection attempt, before it uses the other connection types. This results in a delay that can cause your PPTP VPN connection to fail.

A problem in the network between the modem and the RAS server might have caused the basic dial-up or, in the case of a broadband connection, PPPoE connection, or VPN tunnel to fail. Check connectivity between the modem and the telephone/cable connection jack.
