Is it possible to set up a VPN server on my windows 7 machine so I can use VPN on my ipad from other networks?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.
You can setup a VPN server on windows 7:
Goto > Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections then >Change adapter settings.
Then file > click New Incoming Connection.
Add or select the users to access your computer.(disregard the _vmware user account)
How will people connect screen, check Through the Internet if this is only connection
Select type of network software and click Allow access
FinishIf you have issues, here is a youtube video from Derick Park
Port forward the VPN traffic for your broadband router/firewall (assuming your machine is behind one)
On your IPAD:
Tap Settings > General > Network > VPN > Add VPN Configuration. Then use the VPN settings for your device.
