I have never used VPN before and I am trying to set it up so that a friend of mine can be in my LAN for 2 reasons.
1) so that he can access my CD drive
2) so we can play an old game that only supports LAN through IPX, it doesn't support internet.
I have been trying to figure out how to do this. I was able to create the VPN and he was able to connect to it but he wasn't able to access my shares (including the cd drive).

My computer is connected to a router, he connected to my computer by connecting to my router's WAN address and having ports forwarded to connect to my computer.

When he is connected I can ping my ip address (the one listed as this when I do ipconfig/all)

PPP adapter RAS Server (Dial In) Interface:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Internal RAS Server interface for dial in clients
Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No
IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.105
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.255
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :


but I can't ping the ip address that he is connected as.
If I go to run and connect to my shares by typing \\192.168.0.105 it works just fine, but when he tries it, it tells him that it can't find it.

How do I configure this so that he can access my shares?

Thanks, Mike
