I am a recent convert to Mac Products, so most of this is new to me.  I also do not have much experience running/configuring servers. 


Right now I am trying to set up a VPN connection between my MBA (running lion) and my mac mini running Lion Server.


In the server app on the mac mini I have set the Host Name to my registered dyndns.org address  I have saved the VPN configuration with this host name.  I sent the configuration file to my MBA.  I opened the configuration file on the MBA and set up the network configuration.  However when try to open then VPN connection on the MBA I get the "The L2TP-VPN server did not respond. Try reconnection. If the problem continues, verify your settings and contact your administrator."


I have opened port 1701 on my Lynksys router also, as I has seen that suggestion in a previous thread.


Am I missing any key steps here?

Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.7), Running Lion Server
