While away from home I would like to route all my internet traffic through my home connection for privacy plus some other benefits.

Is it possible to set up a VPN Server on Windows 7 which shares its internet connection with any connected VPN clients? If not, can I route all my traffic through my home connection in another way without having to purchase new hardware?

Worked it out. It came down to the set up of the VPN Client.

Follow the instructions from the Youtube video How To Setup VPN on Windows 7 as Home Solution

In the Networking tab on the VPN Client setup, make sure to uncheck IPv6 (this seemed to be the one change that made this work):

VPN Client Network Properties

Speed result

Not blazingly fast but for private browsing and even games it works a treat.

Thanks. This works with a windows 2008 server also. You also need to make sure the setting "Use default gateway on remote network" is checked. – Chris Kooken Jul 23 '12 at 14:20
