Recently my VPN PPTP connection stopped working.  It seems to connect but then gets stuck on "Authenticating....."  It never times out and I never get an error message.


As a sort of test, I tried entering a totally incorrect Account Name in Network Preferenceces for the VPN connection to see what happens.  When I did that I immediately get an "Authentication Failed" message.  I corrected the user name and it again gets stuck on "Authenticating....."


Any ideas?

Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
