Hi clearz,

We'll need a little more info to help with this I'm afraid.

What OS are you running on your home PC and the PC you're connecting from?
How did you set up the VPN?
Can you ping your home PC?
Are there any firewalls involved?

The answers to the above questions will help to narrow down the possibilities.
