Question PPTP VPN on Debian VPS (port 1723 Closed)


I have been trying to setup a vpn for my ipad all weekend long. I believe i have set it up right after all the tutorials I have read. The problem is, when I try and connect, I am told the server is not responding. I also tried on my Ubuntu box, same problem. I did an nmap on my server on port 1723. This told me the port was closed. I put
Code:
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 110 -j ACCEPT
in my /etc/iptables.conf and no luck. Now I am asking for help. I am running Debian, have reboot, and made sure pptpd is running. Thanks for the help. My VPS provider (Sshvm.com) is running SolusVM.
