Angry PPTPD Problems on Lenny (Debian 505)

Hi all,
I have just set up a VPN server on my Linux box at home. I can connect to it just fine. But when I browse to my file server, Open a RDP connection the connection falls over. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

Check out the log files on the server for any errors. Turn on verbose or increased logging level in the sever file. Also make sure you are not attempting to connect from within th esame subnet or a subnet that can be routed to your LAN via a router connected to both subnets. Additionally check your proxyarp settings.
