Basically, I'm trying to create a VPN connection that I can use overseas so that I can use my own UK IP address in another country to access content such as BBC iPlayer and Skype which are restricted in the country that I am going to. I could buy a VPN but that would seem rather silly seeing as I could create my own, hopefully. However, I have tried to create a VPN but I have failed miserably! I tried setting up a VPN using the basic method, i.e. Create a new VPN, enter IP address, enter password etc, basically, I follwed these steps - http://answers.oreilly.com/topic/667-how-to-create-a-vpn-connection-in-windows-7/

After setting up, I get an error message saying that I cant connect to the VPN etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Essentially we cannot assist with bypassing country restrictions on internet content, so I'm going to have to close this.

thanks,
