VPN server software?

I need something that can host a VPN server on Windows 7. Not LogMeIn Hamachi or the one hidden in Windows' network connections, neither of those work. I'm looking for a free program.

Hello,

You are better of hosting VPN Connections via your router. Its simpler to manage.

What are you trying to achive?

By default, Minecraft Pocket Edition can only play multiplayer with devices on the same wireless network. Using a VPN, I figured devices connected to the same server could play together without being on the same wireless network.

Ahh ok.

Settup the VPN connection on your Router (If its capable of doing it). At the remote site create the VPN through windows.

I've got a Linksys router, and I cannot create a VPN in Windows using the "Allow incoming connections" method. I simply don't have the option.

You need to do this within the Network and Sharing Centre, not network connections.

Then click, connect to a network.

But I don't want to connect to a network, I want to host one. Where might that be, anyway?

Like I said, you would host the VPN on your router if its capable of doing so. Then the remote party would connect to a network.

Whats the make and model of your router?
