Windows 7: VPN connected, no packets being sent

08 May 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
VPN connected, no packets being sent

I've followed countless how tos that say to create a new incoming connection. I went into the connections, pressed alt, crate new incoming connection. I told it to share my networks, assigned my users and gave ipv4 an IP scope to use. I made sure my Linksys E4200 router had VPN PTPP pass through on and port forwarded PPTP and GRE to my laptop. I then went on my client device (and android phone which supports PTPP VPN) and successfully connected to the VPN. However, the phone can not see my network and and the internet fails to work after connected. Server side it shows the client connected but, no ipv4 or ipv6 connectivity and no packets being sent back and forth.

I've been trying to figure this out all day. I would love some help. Thank you!
