But when I check my ip address, it is the same as my local ISP's ip address.

Both services are started on the client(local) and my server.

How can I debug this issue? where to start?

Both client and server are ubuntu.

Do I have to do anything locally in my 'Devices : Network tools'?

I am looking at the VPN connection, and the only option is VPN, is that the correct one? I setup a VPN on a server that will forward all local requests to the server.

I'm not sure I fully got that – slhck May 15 '11 at 20:24
I setup VPN on an ubuntu server, and it is running. This is will take all requests from my local computer and pass it through the server. – user27449 May 15 '11 at 20:28
@user27449 I know what a VPN server is :) So you're saying even though you're connected with the client, you still have your local IP and not one of your VPN? – slhck May 15 '11 at 20:33
yes that's correct. every page I visit I get a server not found EXCEPT for works. – user27449 May 15 '11 at 20:41
@user27449 You should maybe rephrase and edit your question, telling 1) what you did 2) what you want to do and 3) what happens when you try to do that. I had a hard time guessing what the problem is. – slhck May 15 '11 at 20:45
