      Hi,
      not an expert, but had this with previous isp. Couldn't log in on VPN.
      Found I had to disable the windows firewall (start,settings,network connections,Local (if hard wired),properties, advanced, untick"internet connection firewall"

      Thats how I am now and I can VPN!

      It worked for me, though I don't know why?

      Dave

      I am not a sky user but have a simular issue with another ISP and found a cheap router works so copied the MTU to the netgear dg834GT (not a sky one) and found it resolved all my VPN issues. I hope it helps someone as this was a pain for weeks for me.
      MTU 1492

      Everywhere else says to reduce it. I guess this is an old thread but if I found it I guess it may help someone.
