I have a Windows 7 Ultimate that has a PPTP connection with a server 24/24. Now, when I want to connect to my Windows 7 remotely (RDP) from outside the PPTP connection is being dropped and I have to manually reconnect it. This happens each time I logon and logoff Why does this happen ? And how to solve my issue ?

I've tested several times and it happens all the time, tried to enter hostname instead of IP, no changes, the pptp is just being dropped.

How to connect to my Windows 7 without dropping the pptp conenction?

Thank you.

P.S. My Windows 7 allows 2 and more concurrent connections. The pptp sessions was started by user X, after some time user Y wants to connect to this PC remotely and when the user logs in the pptp is being dropped.
