I need to access a Windows 7 machine from a remote site (client computers are using Vista/W7) but cannot get this set up right.
I've followed the tutorial here: http://www.pcworld.com/article/210562/how_to_set_up_vpn_in_windows_7.html
Which is pretty much the same tutorial suggested on many websites but upon setting this up I come across two issues:
- The client computer loses its internet connection (tried disabling the "Use default gateway on remote network" to allow Split Tunnelling but this did not work either.. I got the taskbar icon to light up as if it were connected to the client computer's network but none of the browsers worked and they all returned an "unable to connect to the internet" error)
- The client computer cannot view any of the host computer's files.. I'm not sure how to open up "the window" that shows the host's shared files on the client.
