I have already successfully set up a VPN connection on my local machine. What I need to do now is to add a network connection which will enable  me to view files and folders on the remote machine. I tried to do this via the wizard, but was unsuccessful. The VPN connection is enabled and active.

How do I go about doing this? My machine is a stand-alone. I will be accessing a database and sharing files and folders with another user via the VPN.

Thanks!
