The best way to debug vpn connections is watch the traffic. Some
vpn clients have very extensive diagnostics. See if yours has a debug or
diagnostic window to bring up. (If it doesn't you'll need a sniffer of
some kind like wireshark.) You can look at the debug window and see where
the setup is failing. There are several steps to setting up a vpn. Chances
are that a firewall, packet filter, or some such is blocking one of the 3
protocols/ports used. That appears as a time out because the packets sent
are never acknowledged.
A simple fix might be to disable packet filtering on the Vista side.
