VPN from XP Mode on Windows 7 machine

David_J_G used Ask the Experts™
I am trying to setup a VPN connection to my corporate LAN from XPMode within Windows Virtual PC as I have to use Maximizer 9.5 as a CRM and it won't work in W7.

I have XP Mode setup but the VPN fails to connect.

How should I have set this up?
What needs to be running at the W7 level first?

I can access the internet from within XP Mode using IE.

Thanks in advance

i'm assuming Your XP mode is using NAT to connect to internet. Try setting its networking to be as bridge:

change to adapter which is connected to internet


Thank you.
When I remembered I was using a wireless connection rather than wired ;-)
Worked straight off.
Thanks again.
