Hello experts
I am having no success in setting up a vpn connection to my Vista Ultimate based home PC/Network.
The vpn connection is successful in that bot client and server agree that I am connected, the incoming connection shows in the network connections window on the server computer as being connected, but the status window of that connection says IPV4 connectivity not connected and IPV6 connectivity not connected.
Needless to say I cannot browse any files
Any ides much appreciated

Using VPN on a Vista machine can be hard.
I suggest you try OpenVPN, a free VPN solution with many options.
It works in any environment.

I am obliged to you for your answer however I do use other 3rd party software such as Hamachi for this purpose, but at the end of the day this is supposed to work in Windows and I would like to achieve it in that way
