    Context: I'm not a newbie but far from a pro. Small business situation.

    I'm trying to set up a PPTP VPN on a pretty bare bones Windows Server 2008 R2, connect to it from Win10 machine and map a shared folder on the server as a networked drive.

    I can RDP into the server, Network Policy & Access is running, user is set up with dial-in network access permission, I think the right ports are being forwarded - physical networking might be the problem (Comcast into a Netgear C3000 into a Linksys router.)

    I'm basically out of googling skills, could use some solid input into what I should look at.
