I am connected through a router to the internet. In Windows 7 Enterprise I set up a private VPN server to connect to, but I can only connect to the default gateway and no further.

Everything is on DHCP and no static IPs are assigned.

"No Internet Access" is written in Connections:

My Edimax router is configured to forward TCP port 1723 and UDP port 1723 to internal IP

Note: my VPN is set to automatic:

What must I do to grant outside access to the private VPN tunnel?

UPDATE: RAS (Dial In) Interface has disappeared from connections but service is running but i cannot connect no matter what. I have tried many things. Is RAS critical component to connect to VPN?

This is confusing. Are you trying to set up a VPN server to accept incoming connections, or dial out to a VPN server located someplace else? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Aug 22 '11 at 4:36
To accept incoming connections to VPN server i have setup. – Boris_yo Aug 22 '11 at 8:00

Test your connection from a device outside your network - many routers will not let local devices 'loop back' via their public address to other devices on the local network.
