Windows 7: Odd VPN Problem

Windows 7
Odd VPN Problem

Hi Everyone,

I'm new so please be patient lol. I recently set up a VPN Server using Windows 7's built-in VPN ability. I've been accessing it remotely from school, to access files and certain websites. One day, the VPN suddenly stopped working. On my client that has Windows 7, I connected to the VPN and I had no errors. But when I tried to access anything, nothing would go though. The internet didn't work, the network shares and homegroup weren't accessible. Needless to say, nothing worked. Does anyone have any ideas why it suddenly stopped working?

So far I've tried

- Made sure all settings were the same and correct. (DNS, DHCP, etc)
- Did a netsh winsock reset, to reset all network settings.
- Did a renew on the IP address I was given.
- Turned off ALL firewalls.
- Tried it on another computer and I was able to connect and access the internet.
- Did a ping from the computer that can't access the internet and it worked. (Tried

So yeah, I'm pretty much lost on what to do. Any ideas?
