I have created an incoming connection on my windows 7 machine (PPTP : 1723). I also added the rule to allow TCP 1723 and GRE 47 in outpost global rules. The VPN connects fine, also assigns a dynamic local ip (192.168.1.X) to the client machine, but here is when the problem starts. All the packets are blocked due to the source/destination IP mismatch.

I have tried adding low level rules allowing ICMP,UDP,TCP for the remote address and even tried opening 1024-65535 (all) the ports. Nothing seems to work here.
The setup is as follows :
Server - Windows 7 machine (IP - 192.168.1.X) behind a router whose port 1723 has been forwarded to it
Client - Windows 7 machine behind a router as well (IP - 172.16.10.X)
Searched the forums, tried almost everything, no gain. Maybe I missed out on something as I am not a network expert, hence unable to figure this out.
