How can you set up a private network, across country, using windows VPN, or any other program? I have messed around with VPN before, and everytime i set one up, rather then the other person connecting to me, they try and attempt to connect through me. so their internet then drops, and attempts to use me as an 'ISP'

All i really want to do, is make it so 1 or 2 other people, and I could connect and have windows see it as if it was on a home lan, so file driver sharing, folder sharing, gameing, could be done.

Anyone know how to do something like this at all? I posted once before, but annoyingly my net died so the post was deleted before i can read :/

it doesn't sound like you need a "VPN" per sa, but just a normal Lan. vpn's are more for business uses where a salesman (or anyone outside the office "off campus" if ya will) needs to gain access to shares on a given domain. these boxes have internal IP's and do not get broadcasted outside the domain. this is where you can either RAS in (dial up) or VPN in (other lan network or cable/dsl modem) to the busnesses network.

all you're looking to do is have a local network. 2 main ways of doing this, depending on how many nodes you want on there. if only say you and another box then a cross over cable from NIC to NIC will work fine (running either TCP/IP or simply NETBUI). if more than 10 or so nodes then Netbui kinda goes down hill so tcp/ip is the routing protocol to use.

but this isn't too hard to set up...just grab a hub and connect all the machines to the hub. if running TCP/IP then give every box a unique IP addy (192.168.1.1, .2, .3 and so on) for each box. (netbui just broadcasts so you really don't need to worry about it)

make sure all the boxes are on the same 'workgroup' and you should be set. if you want all the boxes to see each other AND share a cable modem then you'll have to multi home (2 NICs) the box with the cable modem hanging off it. this is your "default gateway" or "route of last resourt". now assign all the other nodes default gateway to the INSIDE IP address (not the cable modem IP) and then every machine will have internet access. (no real need to even use ICS). the only real downside is that you can't shut off the default gateway computer or the nodes will no longer have internet access. (but who shuts off there boxes anyway, aren't they all "Folding"???) :D

sounds like secure connection over the internet = VPN.

DOH i skimmed over that part i guess. :oops:

once set up though WinXP makes it simple to connect to. just create a new connections and select the VPN radio button, then enter the host name or IP addy and it's good to go...VPN's can be slow though do to the encryption/decryption. but in some situations it's the only way to connect.

how do you get past the part where the connecting computer tries to use the VPN as its isp? My friend from israel tried connecting to the VPN i made, and everytime he connected, it would kick him offline, and try to use me.

If your library be at home or another location (office or other), that system would need to be on 24/7 and behind a strong firewall with secure password with restricted access rights. But anywhere you may be, VPN with anonymity would be the simple way for access. Be wary of any public WIFI "hot spots" that are not secure, use only certified secure links. A hard-wired LAN would be best. Windows Help topics outline how to set up a secure VPN network.
You do not have to use your service provider's program. May be a better, more secure and less expensive service than theirs.
