Home VPN

Anyone use or have configured a Home VPN?

I am not talking about connecting to your employers cisco VPN, i mean so you and a friend can connect and access whatever or do whatever (gaming)

Just curious what people use and what works with Windows 7

Yes, jmbender i have, although i have yet to set it up for Windows 7 as of yet. I just assume its not much different from XP. I rather use MS vpn, instead of installing a third party like Hamachi or openVpn (which i did pickup, yet to check it out).

Hmm, I am starting to think that there is no setup of VPN, only vpn connections outbound............ Yikes!

Certainly I am just not finding it, i hope... but i have searched and searched myself just now

Anyone, help on this? Is it avaiable for setup in Windows 7 like for XP? I'm on ultimate install so i would have just assumed it was available, but so far no good.

Am going to take a good guess and say that this has to be configured thru the IAS/Radius Server?

unbelievable for MS NOT to include this for 7 in any build/version?? Wow, this sort of a big factor here. Why in the world would they not include it? I'm sure some ppl like to use open/hamachi or whatever, but for MS not to include their own... on an Ultimate version at that

So yeah thats what i was thinking too, that windows 7 does not include a home vpn service like Vista and XP..... pretty upsetting....
