I'm using Windows 8's Incoming Connections feature to run a PPTP VPN server within my network.
The VPN works perfectly fine, except that remote computers cannot connect to the VPN host itself.
I can ping and connect to all other computers in my local network, but I can't even ping the internal IP address of the VPN host (which is also a file share)
On Windows 7, I solved this issue by setting the network location of the VPN's RAS (Dial In) Interface (on the host machine) to Private.
However, on Windows 8, it defaults to Public, and I can't find any place in the UI to change it. Network locations are now set in the Modern UI Network List, which doesn't show the incoming connection.
