Windows 7: How to properly setup VPN in Windows 7

How to properly setup VPN in Windows 7

I need to setup a VPN with two Windows 7 computers to enable file sharing so that I can ideally map a network drive to the server from the client. Iíve got it to the point where the VPN connects but when I try to ping between any of the computers on the two networks it doesnít go.

My client ipconfig shows:

PPP adapter VPN Connection:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.12
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.255
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :
Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection:

My server ipconfig shows:

When Iím on the client, if I try and ping the server at 192.168.1.9, it doesnít resolve. How to I make this connection?
