PPTP Packets from the VPN Client Cannot Reach the VPN server

I have a VPS that I am trying to setup a PPTP VPN on. When I try to connect with ubuntu it simply say it will not connect. When I use Win 7, it gives the error " PPTP Packets from the VPN Client Cannot Reach the VPN server." Nmap tells me port 1723 is indeed open. It is a VPS so I am rather knowledgeable about its networking. Ifconfig gives me this:

Code:

          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0

          UP BROADCAST POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP  MTU:1500  Metric:1


In my /etc/pptpd.conf I put this for my network:

Code:


localip 206.217.142.122

remoteip 206.217.142.122


My /etc/ppp/chap-secrets is in the format of:


Code:


USERNAME * PASSWORD *

(Spaces between each word)



So obviously something is wrong, I just don't what it is. I am quite new at vpn'ing so all help is appreciated.
