Win7 VPN Won't connect - returns error code 806

I'm using Win7 Ultimate, and am trying to set up a VPN connection to a works server.  I have an XP Pro system that connects OK but can't get W7 to.  I've setup the VPN as close to the XP setup as I can but it still won't work ... it returns a "verifying username and password" then just sits there for about 3/4 minute, returning an error message 806.  The modem/gateway has VPN passthrough set, and port 1723 set in the firewall (remember XP connects OK) so I assume the basic network is setup OK (?).

I need some help on what to do ... I'm new to W7 so am struggling a bit finding my way around.
