I am having difficulties with the a VPN I set up. The client, which is a windows 7 machine, connects to the server, which is also running windows 7. All of the correct ports have been forwarded, and I can connect to the VPN, for about a minute, but then the connection craps out and prompts me to redial. The problem is that the connection never sustains longer than a few minutes. I don't really know a lot about windows VPN server and client, so any help would be appreciated.

I think I can help you out but oddly enough I have an issue from another VPN angle:

For your Issue when you setup the VPN client there should be a section for a timeout.

My Issue:
I know how to setup the Routing and Remote Access (VPN) in 2008 R2 but my question is on the client side not from the same location but from an outside place like my house to the office.

Example:
Computer Name: NJ-DC1
domain Name: FancyFeet.com
Internal IP: 192.168.25.50
There is no company web site

What do I put in the VPN client on my home computer so it will connect to my server. Once it connections I can create a batch file to open up the shared drives. However, in the meantime I know if I put the 192.168.... address from my house it won't know what I want and the same for the FancyFeet.com

Would this be in the client or the server?

I'd start on the client.

No errors or anything, just saying the connection was initiated, blah blah blah, until the connection was terminated by me because it wasn't working.

So it looks like the connection is never actually completing, the minute or so before it terminates is the two systems trying to negotiate settings and when they can't agree it terminates. Since the two systems are talking, we can rule out all external things like port forwarding on routers, windows firewall, etc. So now I would double and triple check all the settings on both systems and make sure they match. The event viewer on the server may also have something that could shed some light on why the tunnel isn't being established.

And the part you've summarized as "blah blah blah" might actually be something important, especially when compared to what you see in the log at the other end.
