The error code here E=691 is a simple authentication failure.

I hope you also changed your real password to "password", or else
you're trying to log in with password "password".
Besides that, the culprit is probably extra backslashes. Instead of:
with the backslash doubled instead of quadrupled. Note that "domain"
should probably be the simple NT domain name (not a fully qualified
hostname). Similarly, the entries in "chap-secrets" should look like:
# Secrets for authentication using CHAP
# client server secret IP addresses
domainname\\username PPTP YourRealPassword SERVER_IP
PPTP domainname\\username YourRealPassword SERVER_IP
with the backslashes doubled, not quadrupled.
On my PPTP tunnel, if I use double backslashes, it works. If I
quadruple the backslashes like you've done, I get the same
authentication failure you do.
