Im trying to set up an XP machine to connect to a pptp server, the internet connection here is actually an x ihug connection.  The pptp server is hosted with sitehost.co.nz, im getting error 619 when trying to connect, tried telnetting to the port and it appears open, also tried from an orcon connection and it connected fine no problems, a telecom connection also works.  But vodafone (x ihug) connection a no go.  Question is why?

Were you using the same modem for all testing? Or different modems on different connections?

different modems for each, the moden on vodafone connection is a Cisco SR520W, now this is a commercial grade modem, requires a terminal to set it up, no web interface.  Im not sure if this is somehow set to block a pptp connection though, so just wondering if anyone else has had pptp issues with vodafone?

That's what I was going to suggest you look at.

Also you should be able to use OpenVPN with sitehost I think,

OpenVPN is encrypted with SSL (more secure than PPTP ) and works over TCP/UDP so no router pass through needed unlike PPTP (which uses GRE protocol).
