what i am looking for is to have the vpn server on my vista desktop that stays at home, and the client on my windows 7 laptop that roams with me. Do I need 3rd party software to do this? Or can I do this with installed windows7/vista (looks possible)? thanks for all your help..
any more links to show me how to, that one was great?
Vista VPN Server

sorry, one other question, once set up will I be able to test vpn if I am on LAN, ie can I test the vpn over the Internet from lan if both comps are on it. do i need to go to the library or outside my network to test? thanks..

Fix for the loss of internet connection while using VPN.

For the issue of losing your internet connection while using the VPN, here's how to fix:
  1. On the client computer:
  2. Go to the Network & Sharing Center
  3. Left hand side, click Change Adapter Settings
  4. Right click your VPN client connection, and choose Properties
  5. Go the the network tab, then highlight "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" and click the 'Properties" button.
  6. Click on the 'Advanced' button.
  7. Disable the 'Use default gateway on remote network' check box.

I had this same issue this week, fixed it for me.

Good Luck.
