    Followed the instructions to the letter
    I can get as far as logging in and get connected but
    I can't see the computer using search
    and nothing is in the workgroup ( MSHOME)
    and I get a permissions failure trying to access any shared folder.

    I'm connecting my laptop which is ordinarily in my home workgroup via my mobile phone to be sure that it is accessing my static IP from "outside"

    any ideas for a newbie

    thx

    From what i recall of last attempting to setup a VPN using XP's built in server it would only allow a single VPN connection at any time, so useless for multiple simultaneous connections, however windows server does support more than 1 simultaneous VPN connection.

    As such, I often found Hamachi to be a much easier VPN to setup, as well as it supporting multiple connections, so great for gaming with friends and file sharing with family.

    Hamanchi does the trick pretty well. The client is nice and lightweight, and it seems to do well for streaming music to my laptop from my file server when I am out and about.

    This all works well and I can play online with my Xbox, however it is not perfect as I need to forward some ports to the Xbox; UDP88, UDP/TCP3074. I have set up my router at home to forward to the VPN server 192.168.0.100. After that, I have used netsh to do what I think is a correct forwarding:

    At home:
    192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.100 (Router to VPN Server)
    192.168.0.100 to 192.168.10.6 (VPN Server to VPN Client)

    At uni:
    192.168.10.6 to 192.168.2.3 (VPN Client to Xbox 360)

    This, however, doesn't appear to have worked and I'm not sure how to debug to see where my problem lies. My netsh dumps are as follows:

    Home VPN Server:
    # ----------------------------------
    # NAT configuration
    # ----------------------------------
    pushd routing ip nat
    uninstall
    install
    set global tcptimeoutmins=1440 udptimeoutmins=1 loglevel=ERROR

    #
    #NAT Configuration For Interface Internal
    #
    add interface name="Internal" mode=PRIVATE

    #
    #NAT Configuration For Interface Wireless Network Connection
    #
    add interface name="Wireless Network Connection" mode=FULL
    add portmapping name="Wireless Network Connection" proto=UDP publicip=0.0.0.0 pu
    blicport=88 privateip=192.168.10.6 privateport=88
    add portmapping name="Wireless Network Connection" proto=UDP publicip=0.0.0.0 pu
    blicport=3074 privateip=192.168.10.6 privateport=3074
    add portmapping name="Wireless Network Connection" proto=TCP publicip=0.0.0.0 pu
    blicport=3074 privateip=192.168.10.6 privateport=3074

    #
    #NAT Configuration For Interface VPN
    #
    add interface name="VPN" mode=PRIVATE
