Hi, I have set up VPN (PPTP) connection on my home computer (windows 10). I'am trying to connect to it from my work computer to be able to use some files. I can connect to it and use files, but then I'am connected to VPN my internet stops working (I can't browse any website). Same things happening when connecting from android device. 

I have tryed to ucheck "use default gateway on remote network" on my work computer and after this problem is solved, but I can't reach files on home computer anymore (error: windows cannot access \\IP)

I think I have to change some settings on my home computer, so everything would work from work computer, android device, and any device... but what settings exactly ???
