Yes I did, though I did limit it to TCP only and reading this page 
again, that might've been my downfall.  I'll modify it to protocol ANY 
and see if that helps.  Other than that, everything else corresponds to 
the instructions there.

Thinking back on it, it seems that the firewall is blocking traffic from back to the ip address that I'm connecting from.  Two 
questions regarding this:

Does anybody know if a firewall on the pptp client breaks this?
Does attempting to connect from behind a NATed connection break this?

In any case, I'll see if modifying the rule helps any.  Thanks for the help.
