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  . :

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
