    I am trying to setup my own VPN, I have installed Server 2003 on my server machine. The server machine is connected to my Netgear router which connects to the internet.

    I have setup the VPN service and can connect localy using an advanced connection setup in windows XP on my client machine.

    Also on my network is a fileserver running windows vista(soon xp or server) the server has over 500gb of storage mostly full t hat i want to share over my VPN. This is also onnected to the netgear router.

    My problem is with sharing these files. How do i set the drives on my file server as standard shares for all VPN connected users? I can access them local over the lan but not sure how to share for users dialing into the VPN?

    any step by step tutorials links would be welcomed or if anyone can help me it would be brilliant or if somone can get on msn with me and walk me through what im doing wrong that would be awsome too. Thanks alot

    Information for how to configure a Windows2003 VPN server can be found at:

    You don't need to make any changes or additions to shares in regards to VPN client's being able to access previous shares on the server. Whatever you have assigned for the LAN access can work for VPN.
