My father and i have set up a VPN. My system, windows XP Pro, is connected dirction to a broadband modome and is running the VPN server.  My Fathers system, Win XP Home, is behind a dlink DI-604 broadband router and is running the VPN client.  He can connect to me with out error.  the Virtual IPs assined are, Client: 192.168.0.101 and Server: 192.168.0.100.

Affter connected my father set up a New Network Place from My Network Places.  Pesified the Address as "\\AMD1\Share" (my computer name is AMD1 and my shared folder is shared under the name Share).  He had no problem connecetd to me and browsing my shared folder.  However, when i attempted to connected to him useing his virtual IP, 192.168.0.101\Share, i could not get a connection.  I ensured that there was a shared folder with the name "Share" in his user profile but still no go.  the error i got was that the folder is not excessable.  
---
Just for the heck of it my dad and i pulled out the router. i then had absolutly no problem creating a new network place and browsing his shared folder.  So, as commen sence would dictate, set assumed it was the firewall on the router and the fact that the packets were not being forwarded to the correct internal IP.  we deactivated any firewall to get down to bare bones and then set up a fowarding system through the DI-604s "Virtual Server".  set it up as Source: My IP and Destination: My dads Internal Network IP.  Still no go.  I then went to dlink to get info on how to configure the router. i followd this site to a T: http://support.dlink.com/faq/view.asp?prod_id=1153&question=vpn.  still no go.  

-----------
Does anyone have any other ideas on how to configure this router to allow me to acess my fauthers computer form My Network Places through the router, or is the problem even in the router config at all.  Thank you for your help in advance.

Hi
make sure you ahve different subnet on your vpn client then on the vpn server, that is,,,when specifying private ip in virtual server configuration. for this you may need to change the server lan interface ip, to a different subnet then the client, because your router is already configured with 192.168.0.1 and the clients in the same range, so bettr to change the lan interface subnet of server.

Well that did it.  it looks like we had a IP address conflict of some kind. I changed the VPN address to somthing compleatly unrelated to my ISP provided ip and unrelated to my fathers LAN ip.  used a 195.168.0.rang.  Works perfectly.  Thank you so much for all your help. Thank you for explaining the reason for the steps you took, i learned alot. Thank you :-)
