Windows VPN Server allows connection but no network access.

I have just set up a new Win 2012 R2 box in AWS intending to use it a windows VPN server. I have installed the remote access role and configured RRAS. I'm using a static address pool of 192.168.200.50 - 192.168.200.200. When I try to connect to the VPN it allows me to however there is then no network access - I cant ping anything but myself. ipconfig -all shows the following:

PPP adapter VPN Connection 2:
   Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
   Description . . . . . . . . . . . : VPN Connection 2
   Physical Address. . . . . . . . . :
   DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No
   Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes
   IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.200.53(Preferred)
   Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.255
   Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 0.0.0.0
   DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.40.20
                                       172.16.0.20

Let me know if you need more information!

Your network mask only allow a single IP address, so all you see is the connection point. Allow the subnet the server uses.  Mask will probably need to look like 255.255.255.0

I agree, but I can't see anywhere that I can configure this...

There should be a setting for subnet mask in the RRAS pool you set up . Try setting up the address range again and use DHCP not Static
