I'm using Windows 7's "Allow incomming connections" to setup a VPN "server".
My laptop connects to the VPN server and I can access the LAN inside the VPN. But no traffic is routed to the internet, the result I want is this:
Laptop -> VPN tunnel over (insecure) Internet -> LAN -> Internet. Currently I have setup a HTTP proxy on a LAN computer and set the laptop to use this proxy server to connect to the internet, like browsing. I had to setup the DNS for the laptop vpn to the DNS used on the LAN for resolving things, but doing a tracert on 188.8.131.52 or any other ip doesnt work. So all traffic is routed via the VPN but it's stopped somewhere. Status on the WAN Miniport PPTP says on IPv4 connectivity - Not Connected.
I'm not very experienced with VPN tech, but I'm traveling to a country I don't trust internet-wise. And I'm bringing a laptop with me. I just need an encrypted tunnel that transparently transmits data over the unsafe internet via an encrypted tunnel to my home network, and then back out unencrypted. This is what is not working without the proxy server (which is only a HTTP proxy).
The VPN server is a VM (Virtual Machine) with 2 NIC adapters, the host also has 2 NIC adapters, so NIC0 goes through LAN behind a router from ISP0 and NIC1 is on a router from ISP1 that gives a public IP (the other creates a LAN, with a single public IP).
That I can access my LAN using VPN is just a bonus. I do not want to purchase software to make this work.
Sorry if this question is confusing, it was difficult to find the proper terms.
