how are you trying to connect to this computer...over the internet? If so, are you connecting by IP or hostname? Do you know your network's public IP address?


i am trying to conect by host name yes i knwo my ip. actulay i have 10 computer diff places i want concect with one i dont have exprerience about this ?


Ok, start by reviewing this Microsoft article on how to setup a VPN connection on XP.

You mentioned that you already opened port 1723. By the way you also need to open Protocol 47 (GRE).

If you want to connect by hostname, I assume that you already setup a host name on a public DNS zone, yes?

Also, you may not be aware of the VPN limitation of XP. It only allows one inbound VPN connection. If you need more, you'll have to run Windows Server.
