Need GOOD tutorial to setup Win7 VPN
Posted on 2011-09-26
I have several Windows 7 Profession 64-bit machines in my office that are networked and all look to one for common documents. I would like to make the shares on OfficePC1 available to my laptop when I am at home.
From my searches it seems that I need to configure some sort of VPN. I understand Win7 has one built in. I called my office ISP and asked them top open the ports specified in the tutorials that I was able to find, but I can't connect.
Obviously since the only way to test is by trying to connect when my laptop is at home, it has become very time consuming to try to adjust settings at the office only to go home and fin that it doesn't work.
Can someone who is familiar with the built-in Windows 7 VPN service direct me to a complete tutorial that can walk me through the steps needeed to properly configure it?
